A Brief History

The Carroll Mansion was built circa 1808 and is the finest example of a Federal era merchant’s townhouse standing in Baltimore. In 1818, this splendid house was purchased by Richard Caton, the son-in-law of Charles Carroll of Carrollton. Mr. Carroll, the only Catholic and last living signer of the Declaration of Independence, wintered here for 12 years until his death at the age of 95.

During the next 100 years, the Mansion housed a saloon, served as a tenement house and sweat shop, was the site of Baltimore City’s first vocational school, and was used as a recreational center during the Great Depression and WWII.

Today, visitors to the Carroll Mansion can discover how vital a role it has played, and continues to play, in the Baltimore community.
