Join photographer Denny Lynch and members of the Greater Hampden Heritage Alliance for another evening of sharing history about the Hampden-Woodberry area. Bring your own photographs, artifacts and memories. Remember and share what it was like to have lived, worked or attended school in one of America’s most intact urban mill villages.
Join the Greater Hampden Hertiage Alliance for a self-guided tour of Hampden's historic churches. All churches on the list are free to visit and open from 12:00 - 3:00 pm. Explore Hampden's history and learn about the congregations and organizations located in the buildings today.
You may have seen the news in the Baltimore Brew or the Baltimore Fishbowl—a local developer is seeking to demolish two of Woodberry's early nineteenth century mill workers' houses to make way for a new apartment building known as Woodberry Station Apartments. This is just one of several major changes under consideration for the neighborhood. The new owners of Clipper Mill are considering a major development for the Tractor Building—a WWI-era machine shop that has housed a parking lot for the last several years.
Nathan Dennies of the Greater Hampden Heritage Alliance will present a short history of the Poole & Hunt Foundry and Machine Works, focusing on how the site changed over time to meet new and challenging industrial needs, and eventually its adaptation to its current use as Clipper Mill. The event is free and registration is not required.
This program is held in partnership with Baltimore Heritage and Preservation Maryland as part of the History of the Jones Falls Mills project, recently chosen as part of Preservation's Six-to-Fix initiative. Grant support for the project comes from the Baltimore National Heritage Area.
