Duchess of Windsor Museum at Adele Corner House

206 E Biddle St, Baltimore, MD 21202 www.adelecornerhouse.com

In 1885, Sarah and Solomon Corner, wealthy Baltimore merchants, built this house next to their own country house for their daughter Adele. The house was constructed of brick and brownstone with a second floor balcony, carved reliefs of the North Wind, demi-lune arched windows and floating staircases. Bessie Wallis Warfield, born in 1896 grew up in Baltimore and moved into the house with her mother in 1908. Wallis became a well known American socialite. In 1934, after her first divorce and while still married to her second husband, she met Edward, Prince of Wales, then heir to the British throne. He proposed to Wallis in 1936 and then abdicated the throne in order to marry her. Today, 206 E. Biddle street is home to Baltimore’s largest private collection of all things Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor. Come see replicas of Wallis’ jewelry, memorabilia, and old newspapers about her life with Edward VIII!
