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!
When we think of classical architecture, we usually think of ancient temples, or the cathedrals and palaces that Renaissance architects built in imitation of classical antiquity. We don’t usually think of row houses.
We should. In the years between 1600 and about 1850, the years when the people of the North Atlantic world wanted classical architecture, they invented the row house and built the first row house cities.
To find out how this happened, and what it looks like, register now and join us on August 7.
