What is it? By definition it is a covered walk to a monastery, cathedral or castle. A castle? In Maryland?

The answer is in the affirmative, and this one is sitting high in the hills of Lutherville Maryland, like a king overlooking his 60 acre domain.

Built in the 1930’s, its palatial construction throws back to the European aristocracy, when horse drawn carriages with footmen, were in fashion.

SUMNER and DUDREA PARKER designed and built this castle, which is now managed by a state agency. Let us take the trip together:
