About the Event

1765. 1785. 1790. 1797. These are the dates of construction of the Robert Long House, Old Otterbein Church, the wooden Caulkers Houses in Fell’s Point, and Mayor Thorowgood Smith’s house in Jonestown. They are some of the oldest standing structures in Baltimore and four of the five historic places we’ll visit on our 2019 Doors Open Bus Tour. To round out the tour, we’ll also visit the Public Works Museum inside the Eastern Avenue Sewage Pumping Station, a wonderful civic structure erected as part of rebuilding the city and its sewage system in the wake of the 1904 Fire.

Please join Baltimore Heritage director Johns Hopkins on this bus trip of some of the oldest buildings in the city. We’ll meet at the Robert Long House in Fell’s Point. Four-hour meter parking is available, as well as a garage at Thames and Caroline Street. Come for the tour and grab lunch in Fell’s Point afterwards!

We are proud to be partnering on this tour with AIA Baltimore and the Baltimore Architecture Foundation.
