CHAP 60th Anniversary Lecture

May 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Ever wonder why Baltimore has so many beautiful buildings and architecturally diverse neighborhoods? In part, it is due to 60 years of the efforts of the Baltimore City Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation, known as “CHAP”, in designating sites, buildings, landscapes, and neighborhoods as historic landmarks and districts. Bolton Hill has been a local historic district since 1967.

Join CHAP at the Wheeler Auditorium at the Enoch Pratt Free Library Central Branch on Wednesday, May 8, from 6:30 – 8 p.m. for a kick-off event to celebrate CHAP’s 60th Anniversary.

Eric Holcomb, Executive Director of the Baltimore City Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation and author, will give a lecture, A Conversation with the Past: Historic Preservation in Baltimore, about the history and role of local historic preservation in this great city. We will end the lecture with a celebration honoring historic preservation leaders.

This is the first event of several to celebrate CHAP’s 60th Anniversary! Please sign up for a free ticket through Eventbrite here.
