A Gothic brick chapel in a park.

On June 16, 1808, Elizabeth Ann Bayley Seton arrived at St. Mary's Seminary in Baltimore on the same day that Bishop John Carroll, the first bishop in the United States, dedicated the seminary's newly built chapel. Elizabeth (known as “Mother Seton”) went on to become America’s first saint and the chapel, designed by noted early American architect Maximilian Godefroy, stands today as an exquisite example of early American Gothic architecture. Please join us during this holiday interlude for a tour of the Mother Seton House and adjacent Seminary Chapel with our hosts from the St. Mary’s Spiritual Center.

A close view of a three-story brick building.

Since it started in 1799, the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of the State of Maryland (MedChi) can boast some notable achievements: the creation in 1807 of what became the University of Maryland School of Medicine, the establishment in 1830 of a medical library, and the creation of the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery in 1839. Join us and MedChi historian Meg Fielding on a tour of this fantastic building and extensive library. If we’re lucky, we may even run into MedChi’s resident ghost: the longtime librarian Marcia Crocker Noyes who lived in a penthouse at the top of building and is rumored to make all sorts of noises in the library’s stacks.
