History from the Middle of the Street: A Walking Tour for the Charles Street Promenade

1 W Saratoga St, Baltimore, MD 21201 1 W Saratoga St, Baltimore, MD, United States

Baltimore is kicking cars off of portions of Charles Street for a day, and we’re taking advantage of it! On Saturday, June 8, only pedestrians and bicycles will be allowed on a good portion of Charles Street between Saratoga and North Avenue as part of the Charles Street Promenade. Join Baltimore Heritage’s Executive Director, Johns Hopkins, on a stroll down the middle of the street to get a perspective that we normally don’t get of many of the city’s most interesting historic buildings. We’ll talk about some of Maryland’s oldest churches, take in architecture from Colonial Revival to Brutalist, and share stories from the founding of American philanthropy to the role rye whisky played in shaping more than a few beloved institutions…all from the middle of the street!

$10 – $15

Historic Ridgely’s Delight

Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum 216 Emory Street, Baltimore, MD, United States

For a tiny neighborhood squeezed between the University of Maryland and Camden Yards, Ridgely’s Delight contains an oversized history. George Washington rode here and Babe Ruth was born here! Join us to walk the preserved, picturesque streets of one of the earliest neighborhoods in Baltimore while we look back at the stories of both its famous visitors and the ordinary Baltimoreans who worked and raised their families here.

Federal Hill Beyond the Views: A Monumental City Tour

Federal Hill Park (Southwest Corner) 301 Warren Avenue, Baltimore, MD, United States

Baltimoreans celebrated atop Federal Hill when we ratified the U.S. Constitution. We used it to defend the city from the British in the War of 1812 and to make sure we stayed in the Union in the Civil War. We have even tunnelled under it to quarry minerals. Join us on a tour of Federal Hill and the neighborhood around it to learn about this waterfront community’s rich history, including stops at one of the last wooden houses in the city, the oldest house in Federal Hill, and the wonderful alley houses along Churchill Street.

$10 – $15

Sustainable, Small Batch Production: A Factory Tour of Mount Royal Soaps

2165 Druid Park Drive, Suite 15, Baltimore 21211 2165 Druid Park Drive, Suite 15, Baltimore, MD, United States

Mount Royal Soap Company was founded in Baltimore, MD in the Spring of 2014 by three soap-obsessed friends: Matt, Pat & Sam. With the explosion of soap and sanitizer demand during the pandemic they opened their first manufacturing space in the Woodberry neighborhood just 2 miles from the Remington store. You may have seen their products at Lexington Market or a farmer’s market.

If you have wondered what goes into creating their palm oil free, plant based, cruelty free products, this is your chance! Our tour will look behind the scenes and give you the opportunity to ask any burning questions you may have. On June 18, join us for a fascinating tour of sustainably sourced bath and body products made through a small batch production process right here in Baltimore.
