Baltimore: The Home of America’s Best Garden Cities (Charles Duff)

Friday, May 29 | 1:00 pm | Donations. The fifth in a series of virtual tours and presentations with Baltimore Heritage and the Baltimore Architecture Foundation. The Garden City Movement, devised by an odd London genius named Ebenezer Howard, has shaped most British development, and the best British development, for more than a century. Baltimore has more good examples of Garden City design and development than any American city. Join Charlie Duff to explore the English movement and the wonderful places where Baltimore architects and developers learned what the Garden City movement had to teach.

Baltimore’s Treasures (Meg Fairfax Fielding)

Friday, May 22 | 1:00 pm | Donations. The fourth in a series of virtual tours and presentations with Baltimore Heritage and the Baltimore Architecture Foundation. Baltimore is a city filled with a wide range of architectural treasures. From tiny temple-like structures, to gem-like carpenter gothic churches, to robust Richardson Revival edifices, to castle-like school buildings, our architecture has something to delight everyone. But some of these treasures are off the beaten path and not everyone knows about them. Take a spin through Baltimore with BAF past president, Meg Fairfax Fielding.
