The city of Baltimore has been through a great deal since it was founded hundreds of years ago. Surviving the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and a massive fire that burned most of downtown, Baltimore is a resilient city with culture, sports, universities, and more. If you’re curious to know more, continue reading to trace the history of Baltimore.
Named after Lord Baltimore of the Irish House of Lords, Baltimore was established in
the 17th century. In its early days, Baltimore served as a tobacco trade hub with England. By the 18th century, Baltimore served as a granary, storing sugar produced by colonies in the Caribbean.
Star Spangled Banner
A few years after America declared war on the British, Baltimore was attacked. During the Battle of Baltimore, Francis Scott Key, a lawyer from Maryland, negotiated with the British for the release of an American prisoner. He later recounted his experience by writing “The Star Spangled Banner,” the poem that eventually became our country’s anthem.
19th Century Growth
Foreign trade flourished after the Revolutionary War ended, especially in the flour industry. With the construction of the Baltimore & Ohio (B&O) Railroad, Baltimore fortified its status as an epicenter for shipping and manufacturing. During this time, the skyline saw new monuments, churches, and other buildings.
The 1904 Fire
In 1904, a fire destroyed more than 1,500 buildings in downtown Baltimore in just 30 hours. Baltimore turned this catastrophe into an opportunity, allowing a better-planned city to emerge from the rubble.
Urban renewal efforts intensified in Baltimore in 1979. New buildings including Harborplace, the National Aquarium, the Maryland Science Center, hotels, and office buildings replaced warehouses and wharves. Brand-new stadiums, billion-dollar biotechnology parks, and a number of museums were built in Baltimore, further boosting its status as a world-class city.

It's hard to relax when you’re arriving at a hotel, tired and strapped with bags. This is especially true if you know you have to wake up early the next morning for a business conference. Fortunately, you can be comfortable on your trip if you follow these tips for settling in to your hotel room.
Inspect the Room
First, make sure that you are getting the room you wanted. Check to see that it has the amenities you were expecting, such as a TV, heater or air conditioner, coffee maker, refrigerator, and so on. You may want to check the pillow of the bed to see if it is too soft or too firm. If you need a new pillow, you can call the front desk and request one.
Decide Whether to Unpack or Not
Some travelers live out of a suitcase, while others prefer to unpack. If the trip is only a few days, you may find it easier to leave shoes, casual clothes, and toiletries packed in your suitcase. If you decide not to unpack, be sure to remove the suit so that you can hang it and keep it wrinkle-free.
Call Your Family
Once you have figured out whether to unpack or leave most things in your suitcase, give your family a call to let them know you have arrived safely. You can also share with them your plans for the trip.
Take Advantage of the Hotel Amenities
Some hotels have a lot to offer in terms of amenities, and most of them are included in the price of the hotel room. Check out the fitness center to burn some calories, or stop by the swimming pool to enjoy an invigorating swim. And head to the spa to unwind after a day of traveling or meetings.
If you are looking for a nice hotel to stay in when you travel to the Baltimore or D.C. area, visit Turf Valley Resort online. Our resort has a business meeting facilities, a golf course, an airport shuttle service, and more. If you have any questions, call us at (410) 465-1500.

Packing a suitcase and traveling light are both very important for reducing travel stress. Watch this video clip for tips on packing effectively for your next trip.
Put the heaviest items in the suitcase first. If you are taking shoes, be sure to stuff them with socks first. Roll up your clothes for optimal space efficiency. Put liquids and accessories into plastic bags for easy access and organization. Sandwich your jackets and pants with plastic to protect them from becoming wrinkled. Place an identification card inside the suitcase, in case the card on the outside gets lost. Watch the video clip for more packing tips.
