Inscription.  The Morison is a pre-Civil War freestanding mansion constructed in 1852 as a private residence for Nathaniel Holmes Morison (1815-1890). In 1867, Morison became provost of the Peabody Institute. George Peabody, a Baltimore dry goods merchant (considered the father of modern-day philanthropy and who created the business of investment banking) founded the Institute in the 1850s—the first such cultural arts institution in America. It began with a small library that Morison transformed into one of the best reference libraries in America. In 1939, the house was sold to Edward A. Looper who converted it into an apartment house. The Morison now features luxury studio and 1 bedroom apartments for rent.
