Trent Waite wasn't new to the Butchers Hill area when he purchased a home there three years ago.

Stepping into 2100 St. Paul St. is like stepping back into Victorian Baltimore, redrawn by man with a passion for restoring self-playing organs and exceptionally large clocks. It's a tinkerer's treasure that ticks. Durward R. Center, 55, has spent three decades restoring the house and adding three tower clocks - two visible from 21st Street and one on the St. Paul Street side. The 220-pound clock weights, the size of gallon paint cans, hang in odd places such as in the stairwell from the third floor down to the first.

People driving down a two-lane road in Jacksonville often slow down at a large Maryland Historical Society marker with the heading "Quinn. " It reads: "500-acre grant in 1704 to Thomas Mac Nemara. Later called Sweet Air. Charles and Daniel Carroll, Mac Nemara's kinsmen, acquired the property and sold it in 1751 to Roger Boyce, who built the present house. It was purchased in 1785 for Henry Hill Carroll, who died here in 1804. His son, Henry Carroll, sold it in 1838. " This could almost be a page from a 200-year-old courthouse document, were it not for the fact that a three-story, brick colonial sits at the end of the lane as a monument to the past.

The vacant brick rowhouse at 2037 Orleans St. looks like many of the 16,000 abandoned homes that beset Baltimore. The front door is covered with plywood. The weedy backyard is strewn with trash. But this empty house stands out in one notable way: It's owned by Police Maj. Melvin T. Russell, commander of the Eastern District - a man who has seen firsthand how blight has damaged East Baltimore and whose job makes him a role model in the community. "I'm an advocate against these people," Russell said Monday, referring to owners of run-down vacants.
