Built to Last
Those who appreciate architecture and design have a wealth of subjects to study in Baltimore. The city’s growth as a maritime and manufacturing powerhouse brought great prosperity and with it, a who’s who of famous architects. Benjamin Henry Latrobe, Stanford White and even Ludwig Mies van der Rohe have left their mark. A drive or walk through town yields a kaleidoscope of Georgian mansions, Greek Revival government buildings and Gilded Age Art Deco clubs, telling the story of this fair city in brick, stone and glass.
