To round out the tour, we’ll also visit the Public Works Museum inside the Eastern Avenue Sewage Pumping Station, a wonderful civic structure erected as part of rebuilding the city and its sewage system in the wake of the 1904 Fire.

Luckily, Baltimoreans 100 years ago accomplished both. Join us as we tour the 1940 Patapsco Wastewater Treatment Plant that has its roots in the Great Fire and today uses state-of-the-art technology to handle a problem as old as the city itself.
