Agora Financial?s parent company, The Agora, moved to the historic Mount Vernon district of Baltimore in 1994.
Today its operations have grown to include over a dozen buildings in the area ? including several mansions converted into office space. Founder Bill Bonner and The Agora added modern functionality to them while maintaining their opulent charm? and received many preservation awards in the process.
Agora Financial?s primary headquarters are at 808 St. Paul St.
The 808 St. Paul St. location was originally built as two separate homes in the 1850s. Later, the homes were merged, and in the 1920s, the building became the temple of the Order of the Sons of Italy in America. This was the first Grand Lodge of the state of Maryland and served as their headquarters until the 1950s.
