The Maryland Avenue Property Owners Association was

Maryland Avenue in the Central West End. Members of the  

Maryland Avenue Property Owners Association established the  

Maryland Realty Company in 1955 for the purpose of acquiring  

some control over the residential property at 4528 Maryland  

Avenue. The home at was originally built for Robert Stockton, a 

director of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. The Maryland  

Realty Company purchased the property in 1955 in order to  

maintain its status as a single-family residence. After it sold the  

property, the corporation remained alive for the purpose of  

enforcing the deed restriction.
