The Magazine Antiquescasts its watchful eye on the Homewood Museum, a “great estate” in Baltimore, MD. Built from 1800 to 1806, the home was designed after a Palladian 5 part plan. The land was originally a gift from Charles Carrol, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and one of America’s wealthiest blokes, for his son (Charles II). Today the home is interpreted (from a decorative arts perspective) from an 1825 inventory. Visit the museums site for more information.
