The Gatehouse provided a stunning first impression for those visiting William Wyman's estate in the late 19th century. Wyman owned much of the land that is now Homewood campus. He loved nature and kept the grounds mostly undeveloped. The two major buildings he established here were the Villa, where he resided, and the Gatehouse, also known as Homewood Lodge, which was the public entrance to his estate.
Wyman, along with architect Louis Bucher, chose an Italianate style for both buildings. In contrast to the wooden construction of the Villa, Wyman had the Gatehouse made of a green stone, called serpentine. This made it blend with the green forests surrounding it.
After Wyman gave the land to Johns Hopkins University in 1902, student groups met in this building. The Johns Hopkins New-Letter made the Gatehouse its home in October 1965 and remains here to this day.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Johns Hopkins University is a private university based in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. Johns Hopkins also maintains full-time campuses in greater Maryland, Washington, D.C., Italy, and China. It is particularly esteemed for its medical, scientific, and international studies programs.
The university is named for Johns Hopkins, who left $7 million in his 1873 will for the foundation of the university and Johns Hopkins Hospital. At the time, this was the largest philanthropic bequest in U.S. history, the equivalent of over $131 million in the year 2006.

Johns Hopkins was the first university in the United States to emphasize research, applying the German university model developed by Wilhelm von Humboldt and Friedrich Daniel Ernst Schleiermacher. Johns Hopkins is the first American university to teach through seminars, instead of solely through lectures, as well as the first university in America to offer an undergraduate major (as opposed to a purely liberal arts curriculum) and the first American university to grant doctoral degrees. As such Johns Hopkins was a model for most large research universities in the United States, particularly the University of Chicago. According to the National Science Foundation ranking, Johns Hopkins performed $1.49 billion in science, medical and engineering research in fiscal year 2006, making it the leading U.S. academic institution in total Research & Development spending for the 28th year in a row.
The university's first president was Daniel Coit Gilman. Its motto in Latin is Veritas vos liberabit – "The truth shall make you free." The undergraduate student population at Johns Hopkins w ...More...
