A hidden jewel in Baltimore’s crown, Mount Clare Museum House resides in Historic Carroll Park in west Baltimore. Built in the Georgian style, Mount Clare was the 18th century summer home of Charles Carroll, Barrister and his wife Margaret Tilghman Carroll. Today Mount Clare, furnished with a world-class collection of Carroll family furnishings, offers visitors to Baltimore’s oldest residence and Maryland’s first museum house, an authentic look at Maryland’s colonial past through the eyes of the Carroll family. No other site may so completely represent Baltimore’s economic and industrial development as it was once home to a shipyard, grist mill, iron works as well as wheat fields, orchard and vineyard.
This National Historic Landmark is open for guided tours and is managed by The National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of Maryland (NSCDA-MD).
