It’s always a shame to walk around neighborhoods in Baltimore and see all of the blighted vacant homes. It’s even more disturbing when they’re of great historic significance, like Upton Mansion.  As if that wasn’t bad enough — this grand home is owned by the City, and has obviously been neglected for quite some time.
