Cylburn Arboretum Professional Review and Guide

"Take in a stunning array of flowers and trees on the grounds of a beautiful 19th-century mansion. Construction on the Italianate Cylburn Mansion began in 1863, but it wasn’t completed until 1888, when Jesse Tyson, a wealthy Baltimore businessman, moved in with his much younger bride, Edyth Johns. After Jesse died in 1906, Edyth remarried, and she and her husband lived in Cylburn until 1942, when the house became property of the Baltimore City Department of Public Welfare.

By 1954, the Board of Parks and Recreation created the Cylburn Wildflower Preserve and Garden, which was later renamed Cylburn Arboretum. A circular driveway ringed by marigolds and black-eyed Susans, with a centuries-old black walnut tree in the middle, fronts the mansion."
