Auctioneers Note: A&M Auctions is pleased to offer the Estate of Elizabeth Jane Miles and the contents of her home better known as the "The Levin B. Hall House" in Upper Fairmount, MD. The home was built sometime around 1840 and much of the contents are original to the home.

There is an exquisite selection of Eastern Shore of MD antiques and primitives.
