Historic Photos: Cylburn Arboretum
Scenes of Cylburn outdoors allow us to appreciate the grand setting enhanced by gardens, windowboxes and lavish plantings. The architect for the Cylburn mansion was George Frederick. He designed the mansion in the latest style of the time period. He also designed Baltimore City Hall and the Conservatory at Druid Hill Park.
Old photographs of the interior of Cylburn Mansion as decorated to the taste of Edyth Johns Tyson Cotten give us a feeling of her use of the spacious rooms we now call A and B rooms.If anyone knows someone who was entertained at cylburn, please contact us.
|A newspaper article of uncertain date, perhaps between 1906 when Jesse Tyson died and 1910 when Mrs. Tyson was managing her lavish mansion by herself and finding it necessary to reduce her expenses. If anyone knows anything about this extension of coal's efficincy, we would like to know more about it. The picture was taken from the Baltimore News, March 11, 1908.
