New tours and events! Archaeology at Herring Run, a road trip to Havre de Grace, and Baltimore by Bike rides

With tonight’s pop-up exhibit on Baltimore archaeology, an open house at Herring Run Park archaeology dig next weekend, an excursion to Havre de Grace’s Lock House and Canal at the end of the month, we think you’ll enjoy our upcoming tours and events.

On Observatory Hill this evening, our Artifacts & Archaeologists Pop-up Exhibit is a chance to meet local archaeologists, check out artifacts from Hampden, Carroll Park and Patterson Park, and learn how to get involved with archaeology in Baltimore. Next weekend, we’re hosting an open house in Herring Run Park where you can learn about the country estate of William Smith and meet the volunteer archaeologists who are digging for answers to many questions about the park’s history.

On Sunday May 31, we’ll be driving up to Havre de Grace to visit a historic lock house and canal. Stick around for lunch and explore a historic community that Smithsonian Magazine ranked as one the best small town’s to see in America. In June, Baltimore by Bike tours return for ride through the city’s long history of salvaging, demolishing and preserving vacant houses and a tasty repeat of our East Baltimore Bakeries by Bike ride with Dr. Ralph Brown.

Finally, we invite you to join us in our push to bring the Red Line to Baltimore. The Red Line is key to saving historic landmarks, revitalizing historic neighborhoods, and creating new jobs for Baltimore residents. Come out to a Red Line rally this spring – May 12, May 15 or May 20 – to learn more and show off your support for this key investment in our city!
