Housed in a former Gilded Age mansion surrounded by Italian-style gardens, Evergreen Museum & Library is at once an intimate collection of fine and decorative arts, rare books and manuscripts assembled by two generations of the philanthropic Garrett family, and a vibrant, inspirational venue for contemporary artists.
In the mid-19th century, when railroads were king, Baltimore's Garrett family ruled the rails. Evergreen, their home for two generations (1878-1942), is a superb example of Gilded Age architecture set on 26 landscaped acres in Baltimore and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
Tour Evergreen's 48 opulent rooms filled with over 50,000 of the Garretts' extraordinary and eclectic belongings. Stroll the grounds, enjoy a concert in the famed Bakst Theatre, a film or lecture in the charming Carriage House, or a contemporary art exhibition in the gallery.
Evergreen Museum & Library is grateful for the support of the Evergreen House Foundation.
