Clifton Mansion

2701 St Lo Dr, Baltimore, MD 21213 www.civicworks.com/clifton-mansion

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 considered the finest example of Italianate architecture in Baltimore. The beautifully designed landscape reflects the English landscape garden ideals of Andrew Jackson Downing, father of American landscape design, as well as the turn-of-century goals of recreational public space. 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. Come discover an expansive view of Baltimore from the 80-foot tower; join in the rhythmic dancing on the southern colonnade and catch a glimpse of the interior black walnut Grand Staircase, marble entrance hall, intricate plaster-and-woodwork and ornate hand painted finishes.
