Happy first day of spring! We’re celebrating the long-awaited return of sunny days with today’s announcement for our 2014 Baltimore by Foot neighborhood walking tours. I hope you can join us on one (or all!) of these leisurely strolls through five fantastic neighborhoods.
I love Patterson Park? We dig Hampstead Hill! Our archeological investigation in Patterson Park starts next week with a high-tech remote sensing survey using ground-penetrating radar, magnetometry, and more to find what might be hidden under the hill. Stop by the park on March 27 for a high-tech show and tell discussion with Dr. Tim Horsely and Dr. John Bedell.
Finally, whether you’re Irish or not, you might enjoy our our latest Baltimore 1814 update on the St. Patrick’s Day “Divine Service” held in Fell’s Point on March 17, 1814. We even shared found a few Irish toasts that reveal how Baltimore perservered “while English drums rattle at our doors.” Enjoy and please subscribe to receive our weekly Baltimore 1814 updates in your inbox.
