If you haven’t been to Lexington Market in a while, or even if you’re a regular there, we hope you’ll join us on a tour of this iconic Baltimore place to learn about recent changes and plans for the future of the market. Along the tour, we will talk with the owners of Faidley’s, Berger’s, Konstant’s Candy, and other vendors that have been in their stalls for 100 years or more. We will also go down and explore the catacombs under the marketplace, getting a first-hand look at these mysterious spaces that are normally closed to the public.

$15
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.
