April 10, 1996

An editorial in yesterday's editions misidentified Homewood as the home of Col. John Eager Howard. In fact, Colonel Howard's mansion was known as Belvedere and was located near today's Belvedere Hotel. It was built over a period of eight years (1786-1794) and was demolished in 1875-1876 when Calvert Street was extended north.
