Founded in 1960, Baltimore Heritage is the city’s nonprofit historic and architectural preservation organization. Managed since 2003 by executive director and Bolton Hill neighbor Johns Hopkins, they work to preserve and promote Baltimore’s historic buildings and neighborhoods.
Their historic tours help raise funds for the organization and also allows them to share their love for the buildings and places they hope to preserve. Led by volunteer tour guides (including nuns, architects, scholars and activists), participants ride bikes, climb scaffolding, and walk up and down hilly streets as they tour historic buildings and neighborhoods all across the city.
Their spring tour schedule hits many other Baltimore neighborhoods, including Mt. Vernon, Paterson Park, Seton Hill, and Marble Hill, as well as a whiskey distillery, the Maryland Zoo’s Rogers Mansion, Pimlico, and more.
