This apartment is centrally located in the Historic Mount Vernon Cultural District. The convenient location allows you and your companion to tour Baltimore and easily visit Washington DC without the need for a car.
The "Dickinson House" was built in 1879 for John S. Dickinson, and stayed in the family until the 1950's. Many of the original features of this building have survived, and have even been enhanced with an extensive 18-month renovation and preservation. The apartment now has many modern amenities, yet sits in an architectural gem.
After marveling at the 133-year-old details, you will tuck your luggage away and choose among hundreds of landmarks, restaurants and sites to start your venture.
