Located directly across from Lake Artemesia and the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad tracks, the Gray family home was for more than 60 years the site of many gatherings for family and friends. It hosted elementary school students in 1909 when the space in the schoolhouse became inadequate. From 1909 to 1917 a post office and rail stop operated from it as well. Today, Paint Branch Elementary stands on the property.
