The Garrett-Jacobs Mansion is a jewel in the crown of Baltimore’s most distinctive historic homes. It’s breathtaking. Now housing The Engineers Club, the Mansion encompassed 4 earlier houses made into one with approximately 40 rooms, 100 windows, and 16 fireplaces; the most luxurious, it contained a theater, an art gallery of fine paintings, one of the handsomest conservatories in a private home in this country; a compartmentalized elevator and an elegant supper room with a musician’s balcony. The Mansion is the finest legacy of Baltimore’s Golden Age.
