Notes
Survey number HABS MD-1109-U
Building/structure dates: 1906 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1920 subsequent work
Significance: The Practice House is a small component of the campus grounds, but its large neoclassical portico is a prominent eye-catcher. It reflects Ament's obsession with Beaux-Arts detailing and his often haphazard means of incorporating it on the campus.
