The Report: 

This 19th Century Gilded Age estate is part of the John Hopkins University museums. Originally bought by Baltimore Ohio and Railroad President John W. Garrett, it served as a family home until it was donated to the University in 1952. The house, which sits on 22 acres and often exhibits the work of artists in onsite art installations, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.

Woman Getting Married Says:

You can’t beat the location of this wedding venue, which is perfect for guests traveling in from out of town who want to explore the area and stay downtown. I would definitely want to utilize as much of the gorgeous outdoor space as possible (including the un-tented Carriage House Patio), so a spring or summer wedding would be my first choice here.
