4th Grade Visits Homewood House


In conjunction with their study of Maryland history, the fourth grade visited the Homewood House on the Johns Hopkins campus. The house was a wedding gift from Charles Carroll of Carrollton, a wealthy landowner and a signer of the Declaration of Independence, to his son, Charles Carroll, Jr. and his bride, Harriett Chew in the early 1800s. The children enjoyed touring the house with knowledgeable docents, as well as playing marbles and writing with quill pens. The docents complimented our students on having “the best behavior” of all the school groups who visit their museum. We are very proud of them!
