Cylburn Arboretum

This urban oasis sits on 200 acres of natural beauty in north Baltimore. In addition to hundreds of different types of trees (an arboretum is a botanical garden devoted to trees), you’ll find wooded trails and beautiful landscaping that make Cylburn Arboretum a remarkable place worth visiting.

Construction of the magnificent mansion on the property took 25 years (1863 to 1888) and it was designed by George A. Frederick, who also designed Baltimore’s City Hall and the Patterson Park Pagoda. It’s built with locally quarried gneiss, designed in Victorian Renaissance Revival style, and is worth a visit while at the property.
