Celebrate a cherished winter tradition with the BAF—Groundhog Day. Mingle with fellow lovers of Baltimore architecture and party in a Mt. Vernon mansion that was home to some of Baltimore’s elite families and for most of its 128 year existence served as headquarters for the Society of St. Joseph of the Sacred Heart. The mansion is remarkably intact with much of its Gilded Age detailing, and symbolic references to the Josephites’ 87 years in the building.
“I lost my heart to the Enoch Pratt House! To learn about the story of Enoch Pratt, how much he contributed to the help of others, and how much is needed to restore his house, inspired me to want to help bring the house back to its former glory,” says Della Dorsey, a Doors Open Baltimore 2018 attendee.
