  1. Designed by Edward L. Palmer in 1915 for Corbin Braxton Dallam. Mr. Dallam was the president of W. C. Robinson & Son, an oil company, while Mrs. Dallam ( née Nannie Poultney Fisher) was the daughrer of Charles David Fisher, head of grain exporting firm Gill & Fisher, and grew up in an even grander mansion, “Roland View” in Ruxton.

    • Hi Taffy, you are right about this house. I spent some time at the Maryland Historical Society, and realized that you make an especially good point because a lot of sources seem to think the house was designed for Abell.
      I got so interested in the history house of this mansion that am doing a Hot House on it tomorrow. Let me know if you have any more information that I miss! Thanks, Cynthia
