Around Mount Vernon Place, memorials in bronze and marble honor slave-holders – George Washington, John Eager Howard, and until recently, Roger B. Taney. No statue recognizes the labor of the enslaved people who worked and lived in the neighborhood’s handsome antebellum houses. Join Baltimore Heritage and the Maryland Historical Society on a two-part tour at the Society’s newly refreshed Civil War Exhibit and on a walk around Mount Vernon Place to explore stories of slavery and emancipation in Mt. Vernon.
