Tour a working garment factory, take a trip to Middle River, and more! Plus a special showing of WJZ-TV archives tomorrow night

If you thought garment manufacturing in Baltimore was a thing of the past, think again! Fashions Unlimited has been making sportswear for companies like Fila, Nike, and Champion in its South Baltimore factory since 1976 and is still going strong today. We hope you can join us on the morning of June 26 for a tour of their factory with owner Phil Spector. We also hope you’ll join us this Saturday, June 9, as we head out the old Eastern Avenue Trolley line to take a tour of the Heritage Society of Essex and Middle River Museum and its rich collection of information on this part of Baltimore County.

Tomorrow night, June 7, we are pleased to partner with the Greater Hampden Heritage Alliance and the Mid-Atlantic Regional Moving Image Archive as they host a special showing of WJZ-TV archives capturing 50 years of Baltimore on film. Tomorrow’s event is at the Picker House at Mill No. 1 on Falls Road.

And if you haven’t made it out for a Sunday morning Monumental City tour, please come by for an hour on Sunday June 10 as we take a tour of the Phoenix Shot Tower and nearby Jonestown. Or join us later in the month! On Sunday, June 17 we’ll tour the Washington Monument and Mount Vernon Place and, on Sunday, June 24, we’ll take a tour Federal Hill.
