Designed by architect Charles Carson for Baltimore banker John S. Gilman, this 1889 Calvert Street mansion is undergoing a major renovation by developers Azola & Associates and partners  to turn the former Inn at Government House into The Ivy – a new boutique hotel in Mt. Vernon. William Painter, inventor and founder of the Crown Cork and Seal Company, lived at the home with his family up through his death in 1906.
