Walk just a few blocks east from Baltimore’s Sunday Farmers Market and you enter one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city – historic Jonestown. On this tour of often over-looked landmarks, you’ll see handsome cast-iron buildings, hear how urban renewal transformed the community in the 1960s and 1970s, and get inside the famed Phoenix Shot Tower – the tallest structure in the United States until 1846. The Shot Tower stands out in Baltimore’s skyline as a reminder of our early industrial heritage and is a must-see for visitors and locals alike!
Our Monumental City tours are guided walks exploring iconic Baltimore landmarks in Downtown, Jonestown, Mount Vernon and Patterson Park every Sunday from April through November. Our Jonestown tour is organized in partnership with the Carroll Museums. Support for this tour series is provided by the Baltimore National Heritage Area and Maryland Heritage Area Authority.
Free parking at the market is courtesy of Mercy Medical Center at the open air parking lot located at Guilford Avenue and Pleasant Street (accessible from Guilford Avenue). Metered parking is available on the streets surrounding the market.
