The Garrett-Jacobs Mansion is a historic, four-story home in the Mount Vernon neighborhood of Baltimore. Built in the late 1800s — and preserved by state historical easements — the building has been home base for the Engineering Society of Baltimore Inc. (Engineers Club) since 1961. Known in the industry as the “cultural capital of engineering in the Mid-Atlantic,” the Engineers Club opens its venue to various associations and the community for weddings, banquets, educational seminars, and other private events.
A few years ago, the Engineers Club realized patrons required more accessibility to the upper floors of the mansion as well as a streamlined HVAC system. The club decided to build an adjacent 5,600-square-foot tower that connects to the building, providing access to an elevator, stairs, accessible washrooms, and additional storage.
