Baltimore’s oldest colonial house and home to Charles Carroll, Barrister is the oldest house museum in Maryland. To celebrate the last 100 years of the National Society of the Colonial Dames in the State of Maryland transforming Mount Clare into a museum, Mount Clare is offering tours discussing how the house became what it is today. Rather than focusing on the eighteenth century, these tours will cover preservations, bringing objects back to the museum, and how each room changed over the past 100 years.
Sitting high on a hill overlooking downtown Baltimore, Mount Clare Museum House was built by Charles Carroll, Barrister in 1760 as a part of a 1,000 acre colonial agricultural-industrial complex.
The National Society of the Colonial Dames in the State of Maryland (NSCDA-MD) became custodians of Mount Clare in 1917. Learn about the last 100 years at Mount Clare and how it became the museum it is today. The tour will included images of rooms from the 1920s through 1980s, stories of how Carroll pieces were found, and discussion of how objects passed through the family before coming to Mount Clare.
