Doors Open Baltimore: Homewood Museum Guided Tour
October 8 , 11:30 am - 12:30 pm$12.50
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Johns Hopkins University Museums are offering dedicated tours as part of 2023’s Doors Open Baltimore, the citywide festival of architecture and neighborhoods hosted by the Baltimore Architecture Foundation.
A docent will lead a tour of Homewood, one of the best-surviving examples of Federal-period Palladian architecture in the nation and a National Historical Landmark. Built circa 1801 for members of Maryland’s prominent Carroll family, the house also was home to at least 25 enslaved individuals, including William and Rebecca Ross and their two children and Izadod and Cis Conner and six of their 13 children. Homewood is best experienced via our award-winning guided tour, which winds through the house’s 11 elaborately furnished rooms and tells the intertwined narratives of the Carroll, Conner, and Ross families.
