Baltimore County Historical Trust wins $2,000 federal grant

April 02, 1992

The Baltimore County Historical Trust Inc. has won a $2,000 federal grant to help preserve and protect Oliver House, a hunting lodge built during the early 1800s in eastern Baltimore County.

The lodge, at 7310 Gunpowder Road in Oliver Beach, and 1.4 acres around it already have received a historic designation that protects against demolition or substantial change, said Judith S. Kremen, the county trust's executive director.

She said the county trust and Friends of Oliver House Inc. are seeking to match the grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The white stucco house in the Federalist style -- called Harewood by its owner -- was one of the few dwellings designed by the first native-born American architect, Robert Mills.
