From Gas Works to Architectural Salvage: a Tour of Housewerks in South Baltimore

July 21, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

$15 | Register

Opened in 1885 as the headquarters of the Chesapeake Gas Works Company, 1415 Bayard Street was the valve house for an immense gas production facility until a merger with the company that became BG&E near the turn of the century. In 1904, the Baltimore Gas Appliance Manufacturing Company used another building (still standing) on the site to manufacture the Oriole Stove that anchored many Baltimore kitchens. The valve house retains much of its architectural glory and industrial past, including a working fireplace (in a gas production facility?!) and one of the main lines that conducted gas under Hamburg Street to the rest of the city. Housewerks Architectural Salvage now occupies the building as a showroom for salvaged items from historic Baltimore. Please join Housewerks owner Ben Riddleberger for a little wine and cheese and a tour of this fascinating building.  

Parking is available in the lot in front of the building. Wine and cheese will be served.
