30th Anniversary Celebration of Harborplace : Walking Tour & Narrated Presentation

To commemorate the role Baltimore’s Inner Harbor area and Harborplace played in shaping the history of modern-day Baltimore, Urban Planner and Journalist, Martin Millspaugh, along with the Baltimore Architecture Foundation will offer a free, narrated presentation relating to the documentary, Global Harbors: A Waterfront Renaissance. Mr. Millspaugh’s presentation will be introduced by author and authority on Baltimore architecture and development, Charles B. Duff. A free, guided walking tour of the harbor area, hosted by Mr. Duff, will follow the presentation. The walking tour will showcase the history and future of this outstanding example of urban renewal.

Mr. Duff, author of the Midtown Community Plan has been central in facilitating the revival of Baltimore’s four central neighborhoods.

Mr. Millspaugh was a member of the City’s original Inner Harbor planning committee responsible, along with Developer James Rouse, for bringing the concept of Harborplace to fruition.

Since opening in July 1980, Harborplace has played a major role in the renaissance of Baltimore City. Thirty years later, Harborplace is still a vibrant and vital part of the downtown business and tourist district.
