New tours of immigration, Cylburn Mansion, and Baltimore desserts Don’t forget the Centennial Celebration at the Lafayette Statue and the Preservation Society’s Annual Reception tonight!

We hope you can join us over the next several weeks on tours by bike and on foot as we explore immigration into Baltimore, look inside one of the city’s great historic gems at Cylburn Mansion, and eat our way across East Baltimore. You can also check out two great events from our partners this evening: the centennial celebration of the Lafayette Monument at Mount Vernon Place and the Preservation Society’s Annual Reception in Fell’s Point.

On May 21, our Florence Meets Baltimore by Bike: Gelato and Ice Cream bike tour returns with a unique comparison of two great cities in architecture and frozen treats. We’re offering a second bike tour, Food From Home: Immigration, Bakeries, and Delis by Bike on June 10, to discuss immigration past and present, meet the owners from Attman’s Deli, DiPasquales, and Hoehn’s Bakery, and sample their delicious food!

On our Natural and Architectural Beauty at Cylburn Mansion and Arboretum tour on May 23, we’ll take a stroll around the grounds of Cylburn Arboretum and look inside the Tyson family’s historic mansion. And finally, on June 4, we’re pleased to host a tour with Jewish historian Deborah Weiner: Exploring Jewish Immigration: A Walking Tour in Bolton Hill and Reservoir Hill where we’ll highlight some of the Jewish immigrants, their homes, and synagogues, who played leading roles in Baltimore’s development.
