Niernsee and Neilson, Architects of Baltimore
Austrian-born John Randolph Niernsee and American J. Crawford Neilson created Baltimore's first professionally organized architectural firm in 1848. Their building designs were equally innovative and influential. Architect-authors Randolph W. Chalfant and Charles Belfoure analyze the architecture, trace the firm's trajectory, and relate the dramatic story of its principals with verve and discernment.
"A fascinating and comprehensive account of the first major architectural firm of Baltimore...makes a significant contribution to our knowledge of mid-19th century American architecture..." - Damie Stillman, Professor Emeritus of Art History, University of Delaware
