Founded in 1729, Baltimore has one of the richest and most extensive histories of any city in the United States. If you will be heading to the Baltimore area for a business conference or vacation and would like to plan outings to some historical sites in the area, some of the attractions that should be on your radar include:
Mount Clare Museum House
A prototypical example of the Georgian country estate, this grand house-cum-museum in which former U.S. senator Charles Carroll lived has great appeal to history buffs and those who appreciate classic architecture from the Washingtonian era. The house is well preserved and lies on a beautiful park named after the same politician and legal professional.
Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Bypass
Before the Civil War emancipated slaves en masse, one brave woman who escaped from the slavery she was born into risked her life time and again to help some 70 enslaved family and friends escape as well. She made a journey of 150 miles by foot 13 different times, passing through Baltimore on each of them. Reflect on her courage and dedication as you explore the Underground Railroad Bypass in Baltimore or drive the length of the Underground Railroad, along which now runs a scenic road.
Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum
An author, poet, and critic whose early 19th century work has made a lasting impression on the literary world, Edgar Allan Poe spent the years during which some of his most influential works came to fruition living in Baltimore. The home in which he lived between 1833 and 1835 is a National Historic Landmark that can be toured by fans of his work.
Baltimore Streetcar Museum
From 1859 to 1944, the streetcar was a common means of transport in Baltimore. Explore the history and evolution of the streetcar and the role it played in Baltimore life and development with a visit to this museum, a fun historic site for people of all ages.
