**The coronavirus has shut down all of our in-person events this spring, and with it, the revenue we rely on from tickets sales. We’ve gone virtual with our new Five Minute Histories series to help us all stay engaged. But we have a significant funding gap that is growing with each canceled tour. If you are in a position to donate, we appreciate gifts of any size. Thank you.**

All in-person events are canceled until Labor Day (September 7, 2020). Check out our upcoming virtual lectures:

  • July 10: Preservation Trends in Baltimore and Beyond by Eric Holcomb. Register here!
  • July 17: You Will Find It Handy: Documenting Green Book Sites in Md. by Anne Bruder. Register here!
  • July 24: Roadblocks: The Effects of Highways In and Around Druid Hill Park by Graham Coreil-Allen and Jennifer Kunze. Register here!

We are assessing future talks and tours. Please check back for more information. Thank you for your patience!

What We Do


We work to promote historic preservation with residents, neighborhoods and property owners across the city saving places that matter.


We celebrate Baltimore’s rich architectural and social heritage through a range of history education and outreach programs.
