The Baltimore Rowhouse

The Baltimore Rowhouse

Charles Belfoure, Mary Ellen Hayward


probably no different American urban is so outlined through an indigenous architectural kind as Baltimore is through the rowhouse, whose brick facades march up and down the mild hills of town. Why did the rowhouse thrive in Baltimore? How did it break out destruction right here, not like in lots of different old American towns? What have been the forces that resulted in the citywide maintenance of Baltimore's rowhouses? The Baltimore Rowhouse is the interesting 200-year tale of this construction kind. It chronicles the evolution of the rowhouse from its origins as speculative housing for immigrants, via its reclamation and maintenance by way of younger city pioneers due to neighborhood executive sponsorship, to its present career via a brand new cadre of rich execs. The Baltimore Rowhouse was once winner of the 2000 Maryland historic belief history ebook Award for amazing books of scholarly or basic curiosity.
