History of 4711 Roland Ave

The land that comprises the venerable 4700 block of Roland Ave. was one of the first to be developed in the area. It is known as plat one, is protected by land covenants, and has been preserved for over 110 years.
According to the official history of 4711 Roland Ave., the elaborate house was built by the prestigious Roland Park Company in 1892 for Baltimore’s leading dressmaker of the period, E. Marie Jeanneret. The house was built to be the epitome of 19th century splendor, employing the classic shingle and Queen Anne period styles of architecture. Oak staircases, stained glass windows and several fireplaces were just a few of the amenities built into the ornately structured historical home.
