Patterson Park

"Patterson Park is a true urban park with some 1500 trees, but also ample and visible green space. There is a great mixture of relaxing areas that were designed for strolling in the mid to late 19th century, and active areas with athletic facilities designed at the turn of the 20th century -- including the famous Patterson Park Pagoda, an iconic 3-story tower with balconies designed as a place to see people, surrounding communities and the Baltimore Harbor."

The park sees regular daytime use year-round, as well as evening use before dark during the spring, summer and fall, except for special events, when the park may be active well into the night. Both teams and individuals actively use the athletic fields, pool, fishing lake, ice rink, and tennis courts, which are available for use at no fee. .

The site of Patterson Park played a major role in the War of 1812, serving as the grounds where American troops stood ready during the decisive battle of North Point at "Hampstead Hill," the promontory in the park where the Pagoda is situated.

In 1827, Patterson Park began life as a park with 6 acres of land donated by William Patterson, a wealthy shipping merchant, who hoped to create a "public walk," thus becoming the oldest park in Baltimore and the first gift of land given to a city for the purposes of public recreation.

Pearlstone Park

In 1985, a complete park design by Burton was installed on a property adjacent to MICA's Mount Royal Station and across the street from Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. The artist's design consisted of a semi-circle of benches, light fixtures, walkways, and a landscaping plan. Burton's meticulous attention to detail is visible through the mirrored elements of adjacent buildings incorporated into the layout and design of the park.
The result is an urban park that is both aesthetically tailored to its surroundings and subtly elegant. Funding to design and install the original park was provided by the Pearlstone Family Fund of Baltimore.

Phoenix Shot Tower

One of only a very few similar buildings left in the United States, the Phoenix Shot Tower was used to make lead shot from 1828 to 1892. Molten lead was dropped from a platform at the top of the 234' tower through a sieve and into a vat of cold water. Being constructed of one million bricks, the Shot Tower was the tallest building in the United States until the Washington Monument in Washington, DC, was completed after the Civil War. The Shot Tower was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1972.

St. Mark's on the Hill

The community of Christians at St. Mark's on the Hill Episcopal Church welcome all persons who seek Christ, no exceptions.

From the outside, our church building has all the historic charm of the 1920's Gothic revival. The stone structures quarried here in Maryland echo the Holy Churches of the English countryside.

On the inside, our church community is a progressive example of the Episcopal Church as a global village. The congregation hails from Africa, the Caribbean, Central America, and all over the United States. We are a pastoral sized community, averaging about 85 people per Sunday. Our community is growing as more people decide to make St. Mark's their church home. At the moment, we are experiencing an increase in the number of families with children. It is a blessing to add age to the diverse demographics of the parish.

We seek to be the kind of church that nurtures your relationship with God and challenges you to grow more deeply in your faith. Gather with us and make the Body of Christ more complete at St. Mark's.

Susquehanna Museum of Havre de Grace at the Lock House

Located in quaint Havre de Grace, Maryland, the restored lock house stands at what was once the Southern terminus of the Susquehanna and Tidewater Canal. Construction began on the canal in 1836 and was completed in 1840. The 45 miles of canal ran from Havre de Grace at the top of the Chesapeake Bay to Wrightsville, PA. It linked with other canals to open central Pennsylvania to convenient trade with Philadelphia and Baltimore. Twenty-nine locks raised mule-drawn canal boats a total of 233 feet. The Lock tender's House was built in 1840 as the canal office at the Havre de Grace entrance to the canal and as a dwelling for the lock tender and his family. In 1982 this house was restored and opened to the public. Several rooms are restored to their original appearance. Historical artifacts of the Havre de Grace area are on display.
