Robert Long House

In the 1760’s a young merchant named Robert Long bought an individual Plot within the property being laid out by Ann Bond and thus began the history and success of Baltimore’s only surviving Colonial maritime neighborhood.

The house that Long built for himself, in about 1765, is now the oldest surviving residence within the boundaries of old Baltimore City. Unlike most historic houses in Maryland that tell the stories of major landowners and public figures, the Robert Long House connects visitors with the life of an ordinary man working on Baltimore’s waterfront in the 18th century.

Today you can tour the first floor parlors. (You need to make a reservation) The furnishings were the U.S. bicentennial project play of the Maryland State Society Daughters of the American Revolution.  The second floor, which was restored after a fire in December 1999 fire, serves as home to the Preservation Society.
