IN RESPONSE TO ALL YOUR QUESTIONS, FOLKS:

Gibraltar exists because I saved it. Took me seven painful years to accomplish (1991-1998). Had I not done this, Gibraltar would now be six acres of townhouses. That was the plan until I stepped up to the plate.

My great great grandfather built Gibraltar in 1844, and my ancestors lived there until 1909, when my grandfather sold it to the Sharps/duPonts so he could move his architecture practice and family to Easton, MD, where, by the way, I now live and work.

I did my best to have the mansion restored. As you see, I did not succeed with that part, but I did succeed with the gardens and with keepi ng the house from being torn down. I also saved your city from more insidious neocon townhouses.

Thank y'all for caring.

Very Respectfully,

RJB
