Jarrett House

The office of Dr. James Henry Jarrett was moved to the Trinity property in March of 1978.  The links below contain historical information on Dr. Jarrett, the building and photos of the move from its original location at the corner of Washington and Allegheny Avenues.

This small frame structure was built at the turn of the 20th century to be used as a doctor’s office. Its exterior appearance speaks strongly of the Queen Anne style with an arrangement of beveled clapboards, fishscale shingles and a gambrel roof. The interior with its tiny waiting room and examination room says much about space requirements in an earlier period of Towson’s history. The waiting room was finished with tongue-and-groove paneling on the ceiling and walls and was heated by a fireplace with a marbled slate mantel.

Dr. Jarrett’s Office was one of several Queen Anne period buildings that once occupied the corners of the Washington and Allegheny Avenue intersection.. They have all been either altered or demolished. In March, 1975 this building was moved to its present site in order to save it from the fate of its neighbors.
