New Five Minute Histories Project: Join Us to Virtually Explore Baltimore!

We are launching a new series called Five Minute Histories. Each day, we’ll record a short video about a different historic place in Baltimore. My on-site production crew consists of my 14 year old daughter and 15 year old son, and we are honoring Governor Hogan’s request and are doing this from home.

In the days ahead, we’ll explore Civil Rights history, mercantile history, immigration history, religious history, and a whole lot more. Although we sorely wish we could be out and about with you in person, please stay safe and check us out online each day as we try to bring a new historic site to you.

Click here to see all the videos and look for updates everyday! You can also go to our Facebook page or YouTube channel. 

— Johns Hopkins, Executive Director

P.S. If you have suggestions for places to explore, please shoot me an email!

    This is so awesome that you’re doing this. I am in a Facebook group and just posted information about Sellers Mansion (801 N Arlington Street) in Lafayette Square. It’s a dilapadated mansion that each time I pass by it I just cry.

    I’ve been wanting Baltimoreans to do more to embrace it’s history and this just might be the perfect way to do so.

    Thank you so much.

      I’m sorry. I see that you’ve already posted about Sellers Mansion. How about Upton Mansion which I know was recently acquired by the Afro American newspaper or Hutzler’s mansion on Eutaw Place.

      I’m excited and can’t wait until this pandemic is over so I can do more to support your efforts.

      Thanks again
