A Palladian Mansion in the Heart of Bel Air, Maryland

Liriodendron is a historic home and estate located in Bel Air, Harford County, Maryland. It was the summer home of Dr. Howard Kelly and his wife Laetitia. Dr. Kelly was a successful surgeon and founding member of the Johns Hopkins Medical College. The estate is comprised of the mansion named Liriodendron, the Graybeal-Kelly House, a circa 1835 bank barn, a circa 1898 carriage house, a circa 1850 board-and-batten cottage, and five other outbuildings including a corn crib, a smokehouse, two ice houses, and a shed. The 2 1⁄2-story stuccoed brick mansion was designed by the Baltimore architectural firm Wyatt and Nolting in the Georgian Revival style and was constructed in 1898. The 2 1⁄2-story Georgian-style Graybeal-Kelly House, built in 1835, was the manor house for the farm until the mansion was constructed. Liriodendron is used as a wedding, conference, and arts facility.

Liriodendron was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
