Baltimore Civic Works Clifton Mansion
Baltimore is a city filled with history around every corner. Preserving our history wouldn't be possible without the hard work of dedicated volunteers in our community. Throughout Baltimore's history, there have been groups working to preserve our historic buildings, businesses, and neighborhoods so that we can still enjoy them today. 

Civic Works is one volunteer organization working to make the city an even better place to call home, and its home base happens to be one of the most unique historic buildings in Baltimore--Clifton Mansion. Our REALTORS® are here to share details about Civic Works, and the beautiful Clifton Mansion they call home.

History in Action: Civic Works and Baltimore's Clifton Mansion

The Civic Works organization was founded in 1993, and has worked hard to become a positive force in Baltimore's neighborhoods ever since. You'll find examples of the organization's work throughout the city, whether you're touring restored historic homes or enjoying an open, natural space that was once an empty lot.

  • Civic Works is a volunteer organization, with a focus on building skills and participating in community service. The organization is made up of volunteers of all ages, from students to grandparents.
  • In addition to restoring historic spaces, Civic Works plants trees, grows food, repairs homes, and even helps homeowners boost energy efficiency.
  • Civic Works provides mentoring programs for young volunteers, encouraging community service and helping to build the skills that allow students to excel in academic settings.
  • The organization is made up of nearly 37,000 volunteers from all walks of life, and encourages an inclusive, uplifting attitude toward all who participate.

Restoring Baltimore's historic Clifton Mansion is one of the biggest ongoing projects for Civic Works, and for good reason! In addition to being one of the more unique, beautiful historic locations in the city, the Clifton Mansion serves as a home base for all of the good work that Civic Works does throughout Baltimore every day.

  • First constructed in 1802 by Baltimore merchant and military veteran Henry Thompson, the Clifton Mansion has changed hands a number of times since. It became the summer home of famous local philanthropist Johns Hopkins, before the City of Baltimore purchased the property in 1895.
  • Ever since, the Clifton Mansion site has been dedicated to a wide range of activities, serving as a golf course clubhouse, and the home of the city's Parks and Recreation department. Over time, however, parts of the property fell into disrepair.
  • Today, Civic Works is working hard to restore the Clifton Mansion to its original beauty, and you can see the results first-hand when you visit the property. Restoration is an ongoing project, made possible by the hard work of countless volunteers.
  • The Clifton Mansion is a beautiful place to visit, and restoring the property also provides Civic Works with a historic, central location to help expand the organization's good work throughout the city.
  • Are you interested in getting involved with Civic Works, and helping to preserve Baltimore's history? All are welcome! The organization offers many ways to help, whether you'd like to donate funds, become an active volunteer, or participate in a fun, unique event that doubles as an opportunity to help beauty Baltimore through community service.
