The park-like main campus of Johns Hopkins, Homewood, is set on 140 acres (570,000 m²) in the northern part of Baltimore. Much
of the beautiful architecture dates from the nineteenth century, and is designed in the Georgian style. Most newer buildings resemble the Georgian style, being built of red brick with
white marble trim, but lack the details. The campus was originally the estate of the Carroll family, whose residence was used for
administrative offices but now is preserved as a museum. In addition, the renowned Baltimore Museum of
Art is situated just next to the University's campus, and admission is free to students.
