Historian and landscape architect M. Edward Shull will give a lecture, "Homewood: A New World Arcadia," at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 16, in Shriver Hall Auditorium on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles Street in Baltimore.
Shull's slide presentation will be followed by a cross-campus walk to Homewood House Museum for a tour of Building Homewood: Vision for a Villa, an exhibition of tools, design books, maps, and images of Baltimore villas intended to reveal how the house was built, used, and integrated into its landscape. The exhibit celebrates the 200th anniversary of Homewood House and the 100th anniversary of The Johns Hopkins University's presence on the Homewood campus. A dessert reception will follow the tour.
