Vue de L’Eau was built in the nineteenth century with Greek Revival details.  This home is located on the east side of Choptank River, Dorchester County, between Indian and Goose Creek, 1.3 miles west of Maryland Route 16 at the end of Goose Creek Road.  This property was once part of the Choptank Indian Reservation until purchased by Samuel LeCompte in 1799.
