Opened in 1912, the Eastern Avenue Pumping Station has been moving Baltimore’s sewage ever since. This impressive historic landmark is not only a workhorse of the city’s wastewater system but also a striking addition to the architectural landscape of Harbor East. Although the building housed the Public Works Museum until 2010, visitors have rarely been given a glimpse of the functional infrastructure….until now. Join this livestream tour for a behind the scenes look at the beauty of public works.
