About Us

Built in 1858 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Evergreen House is a magnificent 48-room Italianate mansion on 26 wooded acres in Baltimore. Owned by Baltimore’s Garrett Family from 1878 until 1942, the house and the Garretts’ collection, including furniture, fine arts, rare books, Asian decorative arts, and important early 20th century paintings and sculpture, were bequeathed to the Johns Hopkins University and the Evergreen House Foundation. Today Evergreen Museum & Library, its diverse collections, private theater, carriage house, and grounds serve as a museum and regional center for arts and scholarship and provide an extensive year-round schedule of artists, residences, public programs, performances and exhibitions.
