Mount Clare Mansion

Mount Clare Mansion

Another one of the walks Connor and I took this weekend was over to Mount Clare Mansion in Carroll Park. You can read all about the history of the house here.

North Portico

The house is a spectacular 18th century five-part Georgian mansion, which has retained its classical good looks to this day. The interiors are spectacular, furnished with many of the original pieces from the house. The dining room and some of the bedrooms are enough to make you jealous that you don’t live there.

When you're walking around the property, which includes a carriage house available for rentals, you forget that you're in the middle of the city, just a stone's throw away from I-95.

Mount Clare often hosts special events, one of which will be a show in conjunction with Wedgwood, although curiously, the house has none in it's original collection. At Christmas, I bought a wreath, magnolia leaves and several enormous pine cones at their greens sale. Mount Clare is one of Baltimore's many hidden gems. Take a look!
