Celebration of architecture to end October

October 12, 2017 by  

For those in Glen Burnie who love architecture, especially some of the eye-catching old buildings in Baltimore, the Baltimore Architecture Foundation and AIABaltlimore are presenting their fourth annual Doors Open Baltimore for a couple of days at the end of the month.

The event will start with an open house day where over 50 buildings throughout Baltimore will be open for self-guided tours and exploration. Buildings have been organized into neighborhood clusters to help reduce travel time. Some sites that will be participating will be Baltimore City Hall, Jewelry Center, the Society of Model Engineers, The Caulker’s Houses, and the Clifton Mansion.

The second day will be mostly docent-guided tours. Some of these will include The Washington Monument Restorations Tour and Discussion, a walking tour of the Howard Street Corridor, and a tour of Chase Court, which is an 1879 Gothic former manse. Other sites that will have private tours will be the Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum, a walking tour of Harbor Point, and one of the catacombs – Westminister Burying Ground and Hall.

Many visitors will be getting photos of their favorite sites to include in their family calendars and to put on their personalized stationery.

Doors Open Baltimore will take place on October 28 and 29, and walkers may wish to check the event’s website for a complete list of sites and times.
