First, we celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Harborplace with a presentation and walking tour.

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.
