Preserving and promoting Baltimore's historic buildings and neighborhoods.
Join us for an upcoming heritage tour! We ride bikes, climb scaffolding, and walk up and down hilly streets on our tours of Baltimore’s historic buildings and neighborhoods all across the city. Check out our calendar of events below!
Have you ever noticed the fading signs painted on buildings all around Baltimore and wondered what they used to say or why they were on a certain building? They are called ghost signs and photographer Lashelle Bynum has been meticulously researching and documenting them over the last few decades. She has photographed nearly 300 ghost signs in Baltimore to date. Please join us to hear Lashelle talk about her quest to discover and uncover the history of Baltimore’s ghost signs.
Meet the Speaker
Lifelong Baltimorean Lashelle Bynum is a photographer and researcher of her city’s ghost signs and Black history. She is also a board member of Baltimore Heritage and has contributed as a guest in several of the organization’s Five Minute Histories videos.
