Update: 923-927 Washington Boulevard

These properties are scheduled to be demolished July 1, 2015. One other property on this block was demolished (a large corner building) and the parcel will be turned into a fenced parking lot for the short term. Hopefully someone will eventually purchase the lot and build something to benefit the surrounding neighborhood.

In the meantime, have a look at 923 while it’s still standing. Sadly, the condition of this property only declined since 2011 when the original information was posted.

One of Baltimore’s Abandoned Mansions Hits the Auction Block June 23

Update:  According to the auctioneer’s website, this auction has been postponed, with no further information available. Will update on the new date/time if I hear anything.

The subject of this post, the Emerson Mansion, is hitting the auction block on June 23.  It would be wonderful to see this restored as a single-family home again, as it was intended. The photos on the auction website are heartbreaking — it’s been damaged, and is full of trash, but it’s definitely worth saving. (You’ll have to scroll down.)

Most of this property has collapsed, except for the facade and part of the side walls. It’s located next to the site of the former Eigenbrot Brewery. It was the site of two businesses in the early 2000s:  Boyd Moving Extension, Inc. (now forfeited), and Prophetess Kim Boyd Ministries.

There are no permits on file for this address.
