Campaign Update: Whites Hall Remains for Sale
03/15/2017 By Preservation Maryland
In early 2016, Preservation Maryland and the Polm Companies announced their joint intention to preserve Whites Hall, the boyhood home of Johns Hopkins. As a result of that announcement, the property was made available for sale and the Polm Companies began providing tours and accepting viable offers.

With an uncertain future, the property remains threatened and Preservation Maryland is eager to find a preservation minded buyer willing to tackle the job and restore the historic site to its original splendor.
