B&O American Brasserie

B&O American Brasserie, where American Dining meets the American Rail
B&O is a special combination of style and substance, a restaurant with a sum that is far greater than its parts, worthy of the legendary Baltimore & Ohio Railway's headquarters, where we make our home adjacent to Hotel Monaco Baltimore.

Step inside and you'll notice what we've done with the place. Contemporary design elements are set against a backdrop of time-honored architectural features. Using the building's original Beaux-Arts architecture, we brought back touches from old B&O dining cars like The York and integrated them into the fundamentals like the chairs and table lamps.

Baltimore Basilica

As the first Roman Catholic cathedral in the United States, the Basilica of the Assumption is a major landmark in the history of the nation. The Basilica is, as well, a major monument in American architectural history. It has been described as "North America's most beautiful church" by architectural historian Sir Nicholas Pevsner and as "one of the finest ecclesiastical monuments of Romantic classicism" by Henry Russell Hitchcock. The Basilica is generally considered the architectural masterpiece of Benjamin Henry Latrobe, the first professional architect to practice in the Republic and the architect of the U.S. Capitol. When originally constructed on a hill overlooking the city of Baltimore, the Basilica with its massive dome was an icon visible for miles. Today, it is one of the most significant landmarks remaining from the early nineteenth century in the United States. Because of its great historical and architectural significance, the Basilica has been designated a national Historic Landmark by the U.S. Government.

Baltimore Civil War Museum

On April 19, 1861, the first blood of the Civil War was shed as Union troops fought their way from the President Street Railroad Station to the B&O?s Camden Station through an angry mob of southern sympathizers. The Baltimore Civil War Museum, housed in President Street Station, one of the oldest surviving railroad stations in the country, examines the events of that day and highlights Maryland's divided loyalties and critical role as a border state during the war. In addition, visitors will hear the story of the station's important role in the escape of enslaved African Americans via the Underground Railroad. The Baltimore Civil War Museum is currently closed, but the building is worth a visit.

Baltimore Ghost Tours

Baltimore Ghost Tours is locally owned and operated, and our tour guides are local actors.

The Original Fells Point GhostWalk is a Certified Authentic Baltimore Tour. We are members of the Baltimore Convention and Visitors Bureau and The Baltimore Tourism Association.

When Amy Lynwander and Melissa Rowell set out to research ghost stories of Fell's Point, they started knocking on doors, talking to residents and bar owners, and combing through documents at libraries. Their findings were revealed during the Fell's Point GhostWalk in October 2001.

In July, 2005, they published their first book of Baltimore ghost stories, Baltimore's Harbor Haunts.

While researching their book, the duo uncovered stories from the Mount Vernon neighborhood and began the process all over again to create the Mount Vernon GhostWalk, which debuted in September, 2007.

What motivates Rowell and Lynwander is capturing the rich history of these unique neighborhoods and presenting it in a new way.

Tour meeting location varies depending on tour. Check the website for upcoming tours and locations.
