A Long Tradition of Care

As an independent, not-for-profit Life Plan Community, Carsins Run will continue its tradition of putting people before profits. 

  • 1884—The Presbyterian Home of Baltimore opened its doors, fulfilling the vision of Mrs. Cyrus Dickson, wife of the Westminster Presbyterian Church’s minister. The home was intended to “benefit Presbyterian women of limited means or feeble health.” 
  • 1920 —The Charter was amended to change the name to Presbyterian Home of Maryland.
  • 1929 — Filled to capacity, it was decided that the home needed room to grow. The organization purchased the Offut Estate, previously known as the Bosley Mansion, and men entered as well. The large home, built in 1856, was situated on 4.5 acres in the Southland Hills neighborhood in Towson. A new wing was immediately added onto the original house, increasing the living quarters by 36 bedrooms and included an infirmary. The Community continued offering a continuum of services and amenities at this location until 2016.
  • 1995 — The Board of Directors realized the buildings at Towson were reaching obsolescence and began searching for land to build a new community that would expand the mission in a new place. Harford County was chosen to build a Life Plan Community called Carsins Run at Eva Mar.
