Carroll Mansion

A two-story wing possibly a kitchen, extended off the back of the mansion. Activities in an early nineteenth-century kitchen and kitchen yard included cooking for the entire household, drawing water, heating water for laundry and personal use, ironing, butchering, and drying herbs.

Historical records indicated that the two-story wing was made of brick and had a door connecting its second story to the second story of the mansion. Archaeological evidence indicates that the wing had a brick basement floor and steps which led to the cellar of the mansion.

Kitchens in Baltimore were often extensions of the main structure or separate from it, because of danger from the open fire-place. If you look closely around the first-and second-story windows on the east side (left) of the building, you can see evidence of where the doors connected the wing to the main structure.
