In 1904, Baltimore, Maryland faced what is known today as The Great Fire that destroyed nearly the entire city. The city was in turmoil, and citizens turned to members of the engineering profession to plan, design, and execute rebuilding efforts. Alfred Quick, the Water Engineer for the City of Baltimore, discovered an overwhelming need and interest for a meeting place for engineers come together and exchange ideas. Then in April of 1905, The Engineers Club rose from the ashes of The Great Fire and Quick, along with a few others, began conducting formal meetings, establishing by laws, and electing officers. By establishing itself in such a crucial time in Baltimore’s history, The Engineers Club played a fundamental role in shaping the city’s character. Today, the Club welcomes all types of opportunities, and one specifically is doubling its residence as a one-of-a-kind wedding venue.
From the time The Engineers Club was established up until the early 1960s, it had relocated throughout Baltimore five times, and finally settled in the Garrett-Jacobs Mansion in Mount Vernon, where it remains today. With a combination of rich history and beautiful architectural design, the Club couldn’t have chosen a better place to reside. Last year, The Engineers Club had been recognized for the Wedding Wire Bride’s Choice Award, and we can easily see why. Couples provide their vision of how they see their big day and the experienced and professional staff takes care of all the details.
