A Stately Historic Location

The Mansion House at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore (circa 1801) is a truly stylish setting for special occasions. Large windows on all sides of the elegant, wrap-around porch overlook Druid Hill Park and the older treed areas of the Zoo. While the historic nature of the building adds a notable charm to the space, the individually controlled chandeliers allow for smooth transitions to set any mood, and the air-conditioning for a distinguished setting with modern comfort.
