The Ira Remsen House was the home of Johns Hopkins University president Ira Remsen from 1901 to 1925. The house is a typical Baltimore row house of no particular architectural distinction. It is primarily notable for its association with Remsen, a noted chemist.[3]

The house is a three story brick row house, built in the 1880s. Remsen lived there from 1901, when he became president of Johns Hopkins University, until about 1925. The house was renovated in 1945, when the cornice was replaced, the front sandblasted, and the interior divided into three apartments.[4]
