Clifton Mansion

2701 St Lo Dr, Baltimore, MD 21213

Clifton Mansion was originally built as a two-story Federal-style farmhouse by Baltimore merchant Henry Thompson. The building was later expanded and renovated by Johns Hopkins, who used it as a summer residence. Clifton Mansion is a fine example of Italianate architecture in Baltimore. The building is now home to Civic Works, a community non-profit organization delivering job-training and skills development programs, as well as coordinating community service engagement. Discover an expansive view of Baltimore from the 80-foot tower, climb the black walnut grand staircase and catch a glimpse of the restoration of the tower entrance hall’s mural and ornate wood and plaster decor. Park on the loop-road that surrounds the mansion. Enter by the brownstone stairs to the glass lobby.
