New year & new tours! Baltimore’s Victorian City Hall, Natty Boh Brewery and more

Happy holidays! We hope to see you on one of our great heritage tours in the early new year. Don’t forget to take a look at our end-of-year video. It is our way of saying thank you to the hundreds of volunteers and supporters who make all of what we do possible.

Join us next month for a lunchtime Behind the Scenes tour of Baltimore City Hall! All of Baltimore’s political, civic and business leaders came together for the dedication of the new City Hall in October 1875. Architect George Frederick was only 21 when he won the design competition with this handsome French Second Empire civic building. Our tour guide, City Hall curator Jeannie Davis, will lead us on a tour covering both architectural history and the history of city government in Baltimore. In addition to the rotunda, we’ll venture into the building’s ceremonial room, the original mayor’s office, and the council chambers.

    Family have told me that my great great grandfather, John Oliver, built this building in the `1840s. Is that accurate?
