We are glad to start the new year, and our winter tour season, by taking you behind the scenes at the workshops of two wonderful local artisans. For our January 27 tour, we’ll visit Thomas Brown Woodwright, a Remington workshop that turns out the highest quality wood products while almost exclusively using machines built before the Great Depression. On February 10, we’re headed to Mount Vernon on a walk through the studio of McLain Wiesand. From their shop on Cathedral Street, McLain Wiseand create decorative arts pieces and furniture sold in glamorous showrooms from Los Angeles to New York following the tradition of Baltimore’s famed 19th century furniture makers.
Finally, we are back again with Baltimore historian Jamie Hunt for our annual Mt. Vernon Valentines Love Stories tour covering two hundred years of love, loss and betrayal in Baltimore’s high society. We’ll be doing two of these tours on February 13—the first at 11:00 am and the second at 1:00 pm.
We are looking forward to year packed with heritage tours and hope you can join us on our first two.
