The seven row houses on 29th Street were designed by the Baltimore architect John R. Forsythe. They were constructed in 1911 by James Miller and initially sold for $9,500 a piece, according to A Brief History of Charles Village. These Edwardian homes have framed Wyman Park Dell for over 111 years. Johns Hopkins University acquired the seven houses over a 20-year period. In 2020, “the university determined that the size and condition of the structures makes rehabilitation infeasible, and it is necessary to proceed with the demolition,” Jill Rosen, director of media relations, said in an email. Currently, Hopkins offers no plan beyond grassy fields for 29th Street once rowhouses are razed.
