The James Drane House is a historic house located in Accident, Garrett County, Maryland, United States.

Description and history[edit]

The house is a ​1 12-story, long rectangular log-and-frame structure with a pitched gable roof and an exterior stone chimney. A small cemetery about 100 yards to the north marks the site of Zion Lutheran Church (dedicated in 1851) and includes a simple brown fieldstone headstone marked "J.D. June 27, 1828." The house was constructed about 1800 by James Drane, the first permanent settler in the Accident area. In the late 1980s the house was stabilized and restored through the efforts of the Town of Accident and numerous local volunteers.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on January 11, 1985.[1]
