The Historic Paulton, Schochor, Federico and Staton, P.A.

Schochor, Federico and Staton, P.A. has called a historic townhouse home for more than 30 years.

The Historic Paulton is a brownstone mansion built by Benjamin Newcomber, who founded the Mercantile Trust Bank in Baltimore. It was his personal home, and he died here in 1901. His viewing was in his parlor, which is now the conference room.

The building was built in 1884 and designed by the local architectural firm of Wilson & Wilson, which designed many of the townhouses in that period.

It features hand-carved Bavarian moldings, fireplaces, high ceilings, plaster moldings, original stained glass windows (thought to be Tiffany), a stained glass large skylight, a floating carved grand semi-circular staircase and a whole lot more. Many original furniture pieces and the original parquet floors remain.

There are large mirrors that reflect the stained glass windows. The fireplaces feature carved oak mantels above them and the ceilings are frescoed.

The three-story red brick house is in the Mount Vernon area of Baltimore and features brownstone trimmings. The house changed hands in the 20th century until it was divided into separate apartments. In 1986 it was restored into a single office building and soon after Schochor, Federico and Staton moved its Baltimore office to the location.

The company features the three ornate front windows in its logo.
