This grand 1850’s mansion was a private home for the business elite until the early 20th century, when it became the site of the first orthopedic clinic in America, under the direction of famed Johns Hopkins surgeon William Steven Baer. Clientele included Franklin Roosevelt, John Kennedy, Katherine Hepburn, Errol Flynn and countless others.

Restored by Founder of House Calls of D.C and Art Collector Paul Scott Rhodes, MD in 2016, the property has been faithfully restored to its original grandeur.
