Nite Lite Photo Of The Day~

Goucher Hall

It’s really interesting how a lot of the buildings on Baltimore’s St. Paul Street tie together. If you look closely, you’ll see clues of how they do. Goucher Hall is a good example of this…

Dr. John F. Goucher founded the Women’s College of Baltimore in 1885 next to the Methodist Church he was the minister of (now called the Lovely Lane Methodist Church). That same church was featured in Monday’s Nite Lite Photo of the Day. Goucher asked Charles Carson to design the college building to harmonize with the church, and two years later builders completed the similarly rock-faced granite Romanesque building, roofed in red tile like the church. The college building was later named in honor of him: Goucher Hall. Broad Romanesque arches define the entrance portico and the second-story windows, and ornamental detail is kept to a minimum. Standing side by side, the church and Goucher Hall look like they belong together.  All this week The Nite Lite Photo of the Day is featuring scenes of Baltimore‘s St. Paul Street.
