About Glen Burnie House and Gardens:
The Glen Burnie House sits on land that Winchester-founder James Wood settled in 1735. Wood’s son Robert built the oldest portions of the house in 1793 and 1794. Descendant Julian Wood Glass Jr. (1910–1992) became the house’s sole owner in the 1950s; with partner R. Lee Taylor (1924–2000), he transformed the Glen Burnie House into a country retreat surrounded by six acres of formal gardens with fountains, sculptures, and intimate garden rooms. After Glass’s death, the house and gardens opened to the public in 1997. Newly reopened after a three-year preservation and renovation project from 2011 to 2014, the house tells the stories of people who have lived in Glen Burnie over the generations. Included is a fully furnished miniature model of the Glen Burnie House that provides an exacting look at how Glass and Taylor furnished it as their private residence. Added to Glen Burnie in 1959, the drawing room features three crystal chandeliers and provides the perfect, intimate setting for the Glen Burnie Salon Series.
