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 with Market Manager Stacey Pack 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.

Natural and Architectural Beauty at Cylburn Arboretum

May 23 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm | Register
Cylburn Arboretum, 4915 Greenspring Avenue
Baltimore, MD 21209 United States

Cylburn began as the private estate of Jesse Tyson, president of the Baltimore Chrome Works Company that became Allied Chemical. At Cylburn, Tyson began building his mansion in 1863 as a summer home for himself and his mother. He completed it in 1888 at age 61 after marrying the 19 year old debutante, Edyth Johns. At the time, Tyson is said to have remarked, “I have the fairest wife, the fastest horses, and the finest house in Maryland." Please join us and our hosts from the Cylburn Arboretum Association on a tour of this wonderful historic mansion. We’ll meet at the Vollmer Center, the new visitors center just off the parking lot: the tour starts with a guided stroll through the gardens on the way into the historic mansion.
