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

Disrupting Lines: The Career and Legacy of Victorine Adams (Virtual Talk)

December 3 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Virtual MD United States
By Donation

Prior to the processing of her archival collection at Morgan State University, Victorine Adams remained obscured behind the imposing notoriety of her husband, William “Little Willie” Adams. Yet she led a remarkable life and was the first African American woman elected to the Baltimore City Council in 1967. Adams also created two organizations, participated in philanthropic endeavors, mentored young women and maintained an impeccable reputation and social life. She was a self-assured woman aware of the distortion that surrounded her race, gender and class in Baltimore. Join Morgan State's University Archivist Dr. Ida E. Jones to see how Victorine Adams' “compassionate conviction” compelled her to organize, raise her voice and run for public office in service to the masses of underserved people in her hometown of Baltimore.

The Maryland Zoo’s Main Valley: A Walk Through History

December 4 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, 1 Safari Place
Baltimore, MD 21217 United States
+ Google Map
$10

Join us for a special walking tour of the Maryland Zoo’s newly reopened historic Main Valley. Kirby Fowler, president of the Maryland Zoo, and Tony Azola, the restoration contractor who helped restore the Main Valley, will lead us as we explore the Zoo's oldest section, which dates back to the 19th century. The Main Valley was closed to the public in 2004 and it served as the “back of house” for employees, while the antiquated cages became overgrown with vines and trees. The Zoo has just reopened the Main Valley as a walking path for guests, providing unique opportunities to learn more about the history of the Zoo and several of its historic landmarks, including iron-barred cages and other structures built when the Rogers Mansion was still a private residence. We hope you’ll join us to experience a walk through the past, which will showcase how far zoological organizations have come from menageries of exotic creatures to conservation centers for endangered species!
