City of College Park

The Taliaferro House was built circa 1893. This photograph depicts the house in 1932. It was clad with asbestos shingles in the 1960's. Architectural features of this simplified Queen-Anne style house include a wraparound porch, canted oriel window, and decorative bracketing. It was the home of Warner Taliaferro, professor of agronomy at the Maryland Agricultural College, and his wife Emily, daughter of John Oliver Johnson who developed the 1889 Johnson and Curriden's subdivision of College Park. It is still the home of Johnson's descendants.

John Oliver Johnson (pictured above was half of the duo Johnson & Curriden that developed the College Park subdivision in 1889. This neighborhood is now known as Old Town College Park.

The original subdivision development encompassed 125 acres. Most of its streets were named for eastern colleges and universities that were prominent at the time.
