“Niernsee and Neilson, the Baltimore architectural firm, designed a number of the neighboring structures on Mt. Vernon Place and were the architects for Asbury House . Originally built for Albert Schumacher, a local shipping magnate and President of the Board of Trade, Asbury House has been converted into church offices and group meetings. Built c. 1850, the house was sold in 1893 to George von Lingen, the German consul in Baltimore, who is credited with remodeling •the second floor library. He •employed German laborers for the intricate carvings and ceiling painting. Mr. and Mrs. Charles Ellet Rieman were the last residents prior to the purchase by the trustees of the Mt.
