A Hot Time In the Old Town: the Great Baltimore Fire of 1904 with Wayne Schaumburg

Engineers Club / Garrett Jacobs Mansion, 11 West Mount Vernon Place

$10

On a cold Sunday in February, 1904, a gentleman flicked his cigar butt on the sidewalk in front of Hurst’s dry goods store where today’s Royal Farms Arena now stands, sparking the great 1904 Baltimore Fire that destroyed over 1500 buildings and caused damages in the order of $100 million (in 1904 dollars). The fire and Baltimore’s Herculean effort to rebuild have shaped the core of how our city looks and functions today. Join Baltimore historian Wayne Schaumburg as he walks through the great 1904 Baltimore Fire, from the young mayor (35-year old Robert McClane) who found himself tasked with battling the fire and launching the city’s recovery, to how Thomas O’Neill saved his department store and how Baltimore got a new cathedral out of it.
