Old Goucher College Buildings is a national historic district in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. It is an approximate 18-block area in the middle of Baltimore which developed in the late 19th and 20th centuries. It is characterized generally by two- and three-story brick row houses constructed mostly in the 19th century and several large-scale institutional and commercial buildings dating from both centuries. Stylistically, the area is characterized primarily by Italianate, Romanesque, Colonial Revival, and Art Deco influences. The district includes a series of large scale, multiple story brick and stone structures built for the Women’s College of Baltimore, present-day Goucher College. Three buildings designed by the nationally famous architect Stanford White are found here.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[1]
