Sound and Proclamation: Learning about Henry McShane and his Bells (Virtual Talk)

October 8 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Virtual MD United States
By Donation

Join us and Luke McCusker of the Irish Railroad Workers Museum as we explore Henry McShane, his bell foundry and the churches where they were installed. His work was vital in the proclamation of religious freedom throughout America's cities and towns. By McShane’s death, his foundry had 1,000 employees. He and his workers had made and shipped over 200,000 bells, supplying 75% of the bells found in America’s churches. Ships and civic memorials also purchased bells from the firm. McShane is also credited with naming Dundalk, having established a factory there and naming it after Dundalk, Ireland where his father was born.

Baltimore’s Vernacular Churches (Virtual Talk)

October 15 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Virtual MD United States

Some are modest, simple structures, some are grander, and probably all of them have been ignored when we think about Baltimore's architectural heritage. If we stop to look at them, however, we see the evidence of Baltimore's spatial and population growth in the years before the Civil War. They tell a tale of geographic and social mobility, changing tastes, and even theological change. You can see all this, if you know what you're looking at.

In 2019, the grand Victorian 8,000 square foot Hawley-Hutzler Mansion went on the market. The mansion was once the home of the Hutzlers, who owned the famous department store of the same name. The mansion has gone through significant alterations since it was built in 1887, including being converted to offices, and in the 1970s, split up into apartments. Needless to say, there would be a lot of work to do to restore this mansion to its former grandeur.
