According to Baltimore Heritage, this home is called the Boss Kelly house, and was part of a row built between 1830 and 1845. Sadly, if you look at the photo on their website and compare it to the photo below — all of the homes to the left of the Boss Kelly House have been torn down to make way for the new housing development planned for Poppleton.

This home has been empty for some time — and it’s become a nuisance and an eyesore for the neighbors. The owners have refused to fix the issues with the home. Hopefully it will be put into receivership, as this is the only blighted vacant in this development.
