About the Northeast Baltimore History Roundtable

Baltimore Heritage partners with resident-led community groups to celebrate and preserve neighborhood history. Thanks to Julie Saylor, Christine Muldowney, and Eric Holcomb for sharing a profile on their work.

The Northeast History Roundtable was formed in partnership with Baltimore Heritage in 2014 to foster knowledge of and appreciation of this area’s rich history. Members are currently working on the Lauraville Heritage Project, which will include self-guided and speaker-guided walking tours, the collection of oral histories, and articles about early residents and life in Lauraville. Other projects include the creation of a Lauraville map with historic “layers” to illustrate the development of the neighborhood, and an archeological dig in Herring Run Park to investigate remains of early mills and the Hall Springs Hotel.

Our upcoming public events in 2014 include the celebration of the 150th anniversary of Immanuel Lutheran Church and Cemetery on August 24, and a lecture by historian Eric Holcomb, which will be held September 25 at the Hamilton Branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library. We will also conduct historian-led tours at the Lauraville Festival on September 27.

We also wish to promote preservation of historic homes by educating residents about historic preservation tax credits available through the City and Maryland Historical Trust. Learn more about historic tax credits today.

Northeast History Roundtable’s membership includes historians, preservationists, community leaders, business owners, and long-time residents. We meet quarterly at Zeke’s Coffee Shop and welcome anyone with a passion for history. We are particularly interested in information about early families, structures, or foundations in Northeast Baltimore City.
