Circa 1820–1822 (J. Brough Schamp) 19. RIGHT 20. BOTTOM The two-story-and-attic Charles Howard house stands to the right of the Washington Monument in this view looking north on Charles Street. Baltimore, Washington’s Monument, drawn by August Kollner; lithograph by Deroy, 1848 (Maryland Historical Society) The Dulin House, anonymous, 1839. The squares laid out around the Washington Monument would prove an attractive place for Baltimore’s affluent citizens to build Greek Revival townhouses, such as this five-bay, two-story-andattic house for merchant George C.
The joint speculators included John Sinclair—the carpenter-architect who owned the land and contracted with the other artisans; a bricklayer; a house carpenter and plasterer; two stonemasons; and a lumber merchant. 43 On the western side of the city, on land belonging to his eighteenthcentury estate, but bordering on the newly opened Lexington Market, Lewis Pascault, a Santo Dominguan refugee and prominent merchant erected an impressive row of eight three-and-a-half-story houses the same year (FIGURE 18 ).
A few years after Charles Howard built in the Greek style on Mt. Vernon Place, merchant (and later French consul) George C. Morton built a similar looking house two blocks west (FIGURE 21 ). Five bays wide, a spare box with crisply cut window openings, a stone portico supported by paired Ionic columns, elegant cast-iron window balconies marking the level of the principal ﬂoor, a very low-pitched gabled roof ﬂanked by stepped brick parapets, and distinctive, small attic windows set in the frieze area of the simple cornice, the Morton house set a standard of Greek Revival elegance that would shape further development on the Howards’ land near the monument.
