Cylburn is a national treasure in our back yard. It is a great opportunity to explore various photo venues. Architectural images of the Victorian mansion and great flowers, plants and trees in the garden and paths.
Jesse Tyson purchased the land in 1863whe he was 37 years old. He was a very wealthy mining business man. He completed the Cylburn mansion in 1868. Cylburn was designed by George A. Frederick who also designed Baltimore City Hall. Cylburn was built with inlaid floors, leaded glass and marble baths the perfect little country home.
In 1888 Jesse at age 61 married Edyth a 19 year old debutante and they became a major part of the Baltimore society. In 1910 Edyth after Jesse’s death re-married Bruce Cotton and continue living at Cylburn. In 1942 upon Edyth’s death Bruce Cotton sold Cylburn to the City of Baltimore for $22,300.00. Baltimore made it a park in 1954 and it went on the National Register of historic sites in 1971. Today this 200 acre park is open to the public to enjoy the Mansion, gardens and walks. Cylburn is also the home of the Baltimore Department of Parks and Recreation and the University of Maryland runs an extension school there to teach gardening.
