Baltimore Heritage is back at Artscape—America’s largest free arts festival—with free walking tours of historic Station North on every day of the festival! Innovation in art, design, movies and music has always had a place on North Avenue. In the 1910s, Parkway’s vaudeville stage screened some of the nation’s earliest “talking pictures.” In the 1960s, the Left Bank Jazz Society hosted jazz greats like Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock and John Coltrane at Charles Street’s Famous Ballroom.

Our one-hour Station North by Foot tours explore the history of buildings from the North Avenue Market (now home to the Wind-Up Space and Liam’s Ale House) to the former Guilford Avenue factory complex of the Crown Cork & Seal Company (today used as Copycat Building and the new Baltimore Design School). Walk along with us and discover stories from the vibrant past and bright future of Station North landmarks.
