Power, Garrett. "High Society: The Building Height Limitation on Baltimore's Mt. Vernon Place." Maryland Historical Magazine 79 (Fall 1984): 197-219.
Annotation / Notes: In 1904 Maryland's first zoning law was passed. It disallowed the construction of any non-church building over 70 feet in height within one block of Baltimore's Washington Monument. This act, which was actually a move of selfish interest of the part of developers who were then marketing the Mount Vernon area to Baltimore's aristocracy, ended up being a major reason why twentieth centuries developers were thwarted and the area preserved in its nineteenth century landscape.
