Homewood

Architecture (Palladian and Federal), silver, Baltimore furniture, American history. Homewood Museum offers visitors the chance to explore diverse interests in tremendous depth and provides an intimate look at life in early-19th-century Baltimore.

The museum's collections consist of fine and decorative arts objects representative of the furnishings during the Carroll family’s occupancy (1802-1833). Some works have direct affiliation with the Carroll family. The majority of the collection is American, with a strong concentration in high-quality Baltimore furniture of the period. English ceramics, silver, and furniture, as well as items of Chinese and French manufacture, are reflective of the imports available in early-19th century Baltimore.

Portions of Homewood's fine and decorative art collections are represented online in the Johns Hopkins University Cultural Properties Database.
