Overview and metadata sections
The Hollywood Children's Summer Home of Baltimore City was a Quaker association established in 1892 to provide a two-week outing in the countryside for poor chuldren of Baltimore City and vicinity. The home was located in Catonsville, Maryland, and members of the Board of Managers and paid staff cared for the children. It was closed in 1917, due to the proliferation of other fresh air charities in Baltimore. The property was sold to St. Vincent de Paul Society, and proceeds donated to the Hollywood Wing of the Children's Hospital School and to the McKim Free Kindergarten.
