Nuclear Ship Savannah Tour

4601 Newgate Ave, Baltimore, MD 21224 4601 Newgate Ave, Baltimore, United States

On May 22, take a step back in time to the Cold War with a tour of a ship formerly powered by uranium! The Nuclear Ship Savannah, the world's first nuclear-powered merchant ship, is truly one-of-a-kind. In the 1950s, President Dwight Eisenhower desired a "peace ship" that would serve as an ambassador for the non-weaponized use of atomic power. On July 21,1959, First Lady Mamie Eisenhower christened the $46.9 million vessel at its launching. After traveling almost half a million miles and visiting over 77 international and domestic ports, the reactor was de-fueled in 1975. Currently docked in Baltimore, the ship has been afloat for 60 years now and is still going strong. We hope you’ll join us to tour this registered National Historic Landmark and take in the sleek modern "Atomic Age" interiors decorated with none other than atom diagrams.

$10 – $15

Historic Green Mount Cemetery

Green Mount Cemetery 1501 Greenmount Ave, Baltimore, MD, United States

Inherited from the great Baltimore historian Wayne Schaumburg, join Baltimore Heritage to tour Baltimore’s historic Green Mount Cemetery.

Opened in 1839, Green Mount is an early example of an urban-rural cemetery, that is, a cemetery with a park-like setting located close to the countryside. Green Mount is the final resting place of some of Maryland’s most famous, and infamous, figures including Johns Hopkins, Enoch Pratt, William and Henry Walters, Mary Elizabeth Garrett, Betsy Patterson, A.S. Abell, John H. B. Latrobe, John Wilkes Booth, and Elijah Bond, who patented the Ouija Board!

Accessibility: Although there are some paved pathways, we will be walking over mostly uneven grassy terrain and cobblestones.

Historic Clifton Mansion

Clifton Mansion 2701 Saint Lo Drive, Baltimore, MD, United States

Join us for a tour inside Clifton Mansion, the unique Italianate country house that has overlooked Baltimore City for over 200 years! At one time the summer home of War of 1812 captain Henry Thompson and then philanthropist Johns Hopkins, the story of Clifton Estate is one about two prominent businessmen, enslaved & free Black people, and more. You’ll see the latest restorations made possible by the Friends of Clifton Mansion and Civic Works. You will also be invited into unrestored spaces that are brimming with stories to tell! And the tour wouldn’t be complete without climbing the tower and taking in one-of-a-kind views of Clifton Park and our surrounding city. We hope to see you there.

Out of the Ashes: The Great Baltimore Fire of 1904

The Replica Gaslight 300 E Baltimore St, Baltimore, MD, United States

In February 1904, Baltimore’s chief firefighter cabled Washington DC: “Desperate fire here. Must have help at once!” A tremendous fire was sweeping through downtown and showed little signs of stopping. Not until 5:00 p.m. the next day was the fire brought under control. Overall, it destroyed 1500 buildings, left 35,000 people unemployed, and damaged $150 million of property. Resilient Baltimore rebounded quickly, erecting new buildings, widening streets, and improving fire safety designs. Rising out of the ashes, Baltimore used the fire to rethink the city, and the downtown we know today is shaped largely by this incident. Join us on this walking tour as we see what 2500 degrees Fahrenheit heat can do to blocks of solid stone, learn how the fire shaped architecture locally and across the country, and hear the tale of one of the fire’s great heroes: Goliath the horse.
