Brooklandwood, or Brookland Wood, is a historic home located in Brooklandville, Baltimore County, Maryland. Its grounds became developed for the St. Paul`s School for Boys.

The house is a 2 12-story, five-bay dwelling. The central block and two later wings are brick, painted white. The central-block section is original and built about 1790, with porches and Palladian-style windows forming a symmetrical, functional unit. It was owned by Charles Carroll of Carrollton, and several of his descendants: Carroll's daughter and son-in-law Mary and Richard Caton, parents of Emily Caton, who married John MacTavish, the British Consul to Baltimore in the early 1800s.[2] It was also owned by Isaac E. Emerson, the inventor of Bromo-Seltzer.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on February 11, 1972.[1]
