Occupying land that was once part of Druid Hill Park, the Parks and People Headquarters includes two diverse buildings, both with LEED “Platinum” designations from the U.S. Green Building Council. The Gothic Revival Druid Hill Park superintendent’s house was constructed of Baltimore County “Butler Stone” in 1872, and nearly destroyed by two fires in the 1980s. Lovingly restored by the Parks and People Foundation, this structure has served as home to numerous park superintendents and their families, as well as a golf club, and a bicycle club. The second building on the campus, the Sally and Butch Michel Center for Parks and People, was constructed in 2015 by Ziger/Snead Architects and is now used as the organization’s headquarters, as well as housing space for community meetings and educational programming. Enjoy a tour of the superintendent’s house or stop at the campus for a mid-day picnic between site visits!
