"From Country Estate to Suburban Neighborhood: Development on the Edge of Baltimore, 18001945"

Today, many of Baltimore City's outer neighborhoods exemplify several historic periods of suburban design. Through street layouts, landscaping, and architectural design, Baltimore neighborhoods such as Arcadia, Windsor Hills, and Walbrook manifested the suburban ideal, a harmony between urban and rural amenities. This mixing of city and country living, however, first found form in the eighteenth-century country estate. By 1800, successful merchants had built a ring of country estates surrounding Baltimore, a development pattern that reaches back to seventeenth- and eighteenth-century England, with antecedents into ancient history. This tradition greatly influenced Baltimore's suburban environment.

Using Baltimore neighborhoods as illustrations, Eric Holcomb, executive director of the Baltimore City Commission on Historical and Architectural Preservation (CHAP), will describe how Baltimore's country estates developed into neighborhoods, and discuss how the architecture and landscape design of these estates influenced the character of Baltimore's suburban communities.
