Culturally, historically, and architecturally significant, Oakdale, circa 1838 and 1898, is the ancestral home of Governor Edwin Warfield and is a magnificent estate on a tranquil 180-acre tract only 20 miles from both the Washington and Baltimore. Historic Ellicott City, Inc announces their 34th Annual Decorator Showhouse fundraiser set to take place at “Oakdale” (16449 Ed Warfield Road, Woodbine, MD 21797) beginning on Friday, May 13, 2022 and running until Sunday, June 5, Thursdays-Sundays with varying times.
In February 1904, Baltimore’s chief firefighter cabled Washington DC: “Desperate fire here. Must have help at once!” A tremendous fire was sweeping through downtown and showed little signs of stopping. Not until 5:00 p.m. the next day was the fire brought under control. Overall, it destroyed 1500 buildings, left 35,000 people unemployed, and damaged $150 million of property. Resilient Baltimore rebounded quickly, erecting new buildings, widening streets, and improving fire safety designs.
