ELLICOTT CITY, Md. - April 2, 2019 - PRLog -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Baltimore's Historic Oakenshawe: From Colonial Land Grant to Streetcar Suburb

Author D.J. Wilson will be available to sign copies of book

The story of Baltimore's historic Oakenshawe neighborhood is a tale of two families and a dream to create an idyllic place.

The powerful Wilson family made fortunes in colonial shipping and established a summer estate for more than one hundred years.

The Mueller families were prominent Baltimore builders, and Phillip C. Mueller envisioned an upscale community of terraced townhomes on the Wilson estate.

After purchasing the property, he died suddenly, and his family banded together to create a vibrant "streetcar suburb" providing affordable homes along newly accessible streetcar routes.

Join author D.J. Wilson as he takes readers through the history of Baltimore's Oakenshawe.
