Owings House replica would be built next to Torah Institute school

OWINGS MILLS -- A reproduction of the 18th-century Samuel Owings House would be built adjacent to a new Jewish day school in Owings Mills under a plan approved yesterday by a Baltimore County hearing officer.

A replica of the house -- which was razed three years ago over the objections of historic preservationists -- would be built for use as a private residence on a 1.4-acre parcel adjacent to St. Thomas Lane, near Reisterstown Road. That parcel would be subdivided from an 11-acre site that is to be the home of a Torah Institute of Baltimore school.

Under an agreement with neighbors and the nearby St. Thomas Episcopal Church, the Torah Institute bought additional property to allow access to the school from Rosewood Lane.
