    Vernacular Architecture Tour of Homewood 

    For the third and final session in this year’s Architecture Lecture Series, Homewood Museum invites guests to experience our personal favorite “Great House of Maryland”—Homewood! Join historic preservationist Jackson Gilman-Forlini and architect Tom McCracken as they lead an exclusive tour through all three floors Homewood, including many of the nooks and crannies not shown on regular tours. Two tour times are offered: 4-5 p.m. and 5:30-6:30 p.m. Each tour is limited to 12 guests and participants must be able to climb stairs.


    Jackson Gilman-Forlini is the Historic Preservation Officer for the Baltimore City Department of General Services, where he manages the preservation of city-owned historic sites. He holds a B.A. and M.A. in Historic Preservation from Goucher College. 

    Tom McCracken is the founder and president of McCracken Consulting LLC, a Baltimore-based consulting firm specializing in historic preservation and restoration projects for nonprofits. He holds a B.S. in architecture from University of Cincinnati and an M.S. in administrative science from the Johns Hopkins University.
