Explore Baltimore Heritage


Explore Baltimore Heritage is a website and smartphone application for both iPhone and Android devices featuring historic buildings and neighborhoods from across the city.

This application is built using Curatescape — a mobile app platform for iOS & Android, designed to “curate the city” through the use of geo-located historical texts, archival film and images, oral history (and other) audio, and short documentary videos.
