Former Baltimore house of jazz legend Cab Calloway demolished despite activists’ push

The fight to preserve the house involved numerous appeals against demolition, a site research endeavor by the city’s Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation and other back-and-forth steps over the course of more than a year. Most recently, CHAP recommended that the city designate another house at 1316 N. Carey St., which belonged to Cab Calloway’s maternal grandmother Annie Reed, as a historic landmark, based on a June bill introduced by Councilman Leon Pinkett.
