Winning the 1912 design competition for the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond led three young Baltimore architects to form Sill, Buckler & Fenhagen Architects. The firm proceeded to design many notable institutional buildings in the Mid-Atlantic region during the 1920s and 30s. Among them is Baltimore City College, designed in a Collegiate Gothic style. This “Castle on the Hill,” opened in 1928, features a 150-foot-high tower, courtyards, stained glass, and gargoyles modeled on the faces of the architects.
