History of the Enoch Pratt House

Designed by an unknown architect in the 1840s, this former home to wealthy merchant and philanthropist Enoch Pratt (1808-1896) was originally a two-story with attic, Greek Revival-style brick mansion. In 1868, prominent Baltimore architect, Edmund G. Lind was hired to add a third and fourth story topped with a Mansard roof. A marble portico was also added onto the front steps. The house boasts a double parlor, marble fireplaces, elaborate molding, and soaring windows. In 1919, the building was bequeathed to the Maryland Historical Society and acted as the society's headquarters until the early 21st century. The Enoch Pratt House is still owned by the Maryland Historical Society but is no longer open to the public.
