Exploring Beyond Baltimore
Our Heritage Tours program ventured a little afield in 2015 and hit the road from Annapolis to Havre de Grace. A few highlights were the newly refurbished Old Senate Chamber in Annapolis, a visit to the historic lock house and canal in Havre de Grace, and a natural heritage hike in the Patapsco Valley in Baltimore County.
Tour participants flex their muscles to move the human-powered rotating bridge over the historic lock in Havre de Grace.
Marking Milestones from Baltimore’s History
Billie Holliday Centennial
In the spring, we joined with the Lafayette Square Association and the Upton Planning Council to celebrate jazz singer Billie Holliday’s 100th birthday with a tour of Lafayette Square and Holliday’s former West Baltimore stomping grounds.
Robert Long House 250
In a series of four talks and walks, Baltimore Heritage partnered with the Preservation Society and volunteers in Fell’s Point to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the Robert Long House at the corner of Thames and Ann Streets.
