August 16 , 2007



Guilford, which debuted in 1913 as a collaboration of the Roland Park Company and the acclaimed Olmsted Brothers, became a model for suburban developments nationally. Carved from the country estate of Baltimore Sun founder Arunah Shepherdson Abell, Guilford was a pastoral retreat for Baltimore’s social elite. Its aesthetics combine that of an English country village with modern construction and design to coincide with the American mania for English architecture and town planning. The area has been generously endowed with English-style greens, squares, and signature Olmsted Brothers “places,” creating one of the country’s most parklike developments. Part of a shining, new suburban Baltimore, the prominent neighborhood was developed concurrently with Wyman Park, Johns Hopkins University, and the Baltimore Museum of Art. Now a National Register Historic District, Guilford remains a showcase example of the American garden city movement.
