Baltimoreans celebrated atop Federal Hill when we ratified the U.S. Constitution. We used it to defend the city from the British in the War of 1812 and to make sure we stayed in the Union in the Civil War. We have even tunnelled under it to quarry minerals. Join us on a tour of Federal Hill and the neighborhood around it to learn about this waterfront community’s rich history, including stops at one of the last wooden houses in the city, the oldest house in Federal Hill, and the wonderful alley houses along Churchill Street.
The Bromo Arts Walk is back! Start at Le Mondo and join us for a free, neighborhood-wide exploration of the arts.
We'll be hosting an open house from 5PM - 9PM. You can stop in, check out some art from studio artists, and grab a drink at the bar.
Six of our resident studio artists will be present and sharing their work in the space. You will also be able to contribute to "The Collection Center", an interactive installation in conjunction with the upcoming October edition of our In Plain Sight(site) performance series.
Experience the Bromo Arts District during a night of artistic performances, exhibits, and open studios on Thursday, September 23, from 5-9 pm.

Reminisce on a special tour of "Flickering Treasures: Rediscovering Baltimore’s Forgotten Movie Theaters" with Joe Tropea, Maryland Center for History and Culture’s Curator of Films & Photographs. Walk the red carpet with him as he takes you on the journey of how the movie experience, and the community around it, has changed—celebrate community, experience the history, and return to where it all started.
Where can you find a piece of the Berlin Wall, a cannon ball mounted on a Conestoga wagon hitch, and over a hundred lions looking down at you from the tops of Baltimore’s buildings? On our Downtown Landmarks and Lions tour, of course! In this leisurely stroll—we cover a little over a mile in a little over an hour—you’ll see and hear the highlights of downtown Baltimore’s history and architecture. Best of all, you’ll discover where all the noble lions, hellish fiends, and neo-Egyptian sphinxes are hiding—the trick is in looking up!
***All tours offered on a pay-only-what-you-can basis and proceeds benefit The Edgar Allan Poe House & Museum***
