TOWSON, Md. (AP) — A historic home in Catonsville has been transformed into a jewelry store and tobacco shop after a $300,000 renovation.


The Baltimore Sun reports that the remodeling of the 180-year-old Albert Smith House took seven months. The two-story stone structure that was once home to a founding family of Catonsville now holds the Slow Burns Cigar Shoppe and a jewelry and clock business, the House of Time.


Brenda McCabe is the owner of the House of Time, which she started more than 40 years ago with her late husband. Her daughter-in-law Tasha McCabe will oversee the cigar shop.
