About Us

One of the nation’s finest examples of Federal period architecture Homewood Museum is a National Historic Landmark and is located on the campus of Johns Hopkins University. A classically inspired five-part house, Homewood was built beginning in 1801 as a country-house for Charles Carroll, Jr. (1775-1825) and his bride Harriet Chew Carroll (1775-1861). Homewood Museum’s outstanding Federal style furnishings represent the height of 19th century fashion and provide visitors with an intimate look at the lives of this prominent Maryland family. Interpretive themes include the Carroll family, the growth of Baltimore, and restoration of the historic house. Homewood Museum also offers a year-round schedule of changing exhibitions, educational programs, travel and musical performances.
