History[edit]

The James Lawrence Kernan Hospital was built between 1860 and 1867 as Radnor Park, a two-story, five-bay, Victorian mansion. In the first several decades of the 20th century, alterations were carried out to the original house which made the house over into a combination of the Greek and Colonial Revival styles. The 1920s hospital structures were built in a style that blends well with the mansion and its grounds. James Lawrence Kernan (1838–1912) was a theater manager and philanthropist of the late Victorian and early Edwardian eras in Baltimore.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
