It is one of only two mill owners' homes left in Hampden, constructed in several stages in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

The Mission was founded in 1883 during the social reform movement. It established a network of 76 homes in major U.S. cities and internationally to serve prostitutes and later unwed pregnant women. This property is eligible for landmark designation for its role in the history of Baltimore's mill towns and manufacturing, the social reform movement in Baltimore and the U.S. at large through its association with Florence Crittenton Home, its association with David Carroll, and for its architecture.
