Perhaps no other American city is so defined by an indigenous architectural style as Baltimore is by the rowhouse, whose brick facades march up and down the gentle hills of the city. Why did the rowhouse thrive in Baltimore? How did it escape destruction here, unlike in many other historic American cities? What were the forces that led to the citywide renovation of Baltimore's rowhouses? The Baltimore Rowhouse is the fascinating 200-year story of this building type. It chronicles the evolution of the rowhouse from its origins as speculative housing for immigrants, through its reclamation and renovation by young urban pioneers thanks to local government sponsorship, to its current occupation by a new cadre of wealthy professionals. The Baltimore Rowhouse was winner of the 2000 Maryland Historical Trust Heritage Book Award for outstanding books of scholarly or general interest.

Mary Ellen Hayward holds advanced degrees from the Winterthur Program in Early American Culture and Boston University. She is the co-author of "The Baltimore Rowhouse," and serves as a free-lance architectural historian and museum consultant. Winner of the Baltimore City Historical Society 2003 History Honor, Frank R. Shivers, Jr. teaches at the Johns Hopkins University School of Professional Studies in Business and Education, where he was named "Teacher of the Year." He is the author of "Bolton Hill: Baltimore Classic," "Maryland Wits & Baltimore Bards: A Literary History with Notes on Washington Writers," and "Walking in Baltimore: An Intimate Guide to the Old City," the latter two available from Johns Hopkins, and co-author of "Chesapeake Waters: Four Centuries of Controversy, Concern and Legislation
