Historical Attractions

From the time that Captain John Smith sailed into Baltimore’s harbor (yes, that Captain John Smith so prominent in America’s early days) to the penning of our National Anthem, the story of the African Americans journey to freedom, the industrial revolution, and waves of immigrants, Baltimore’s story is America’s story.

From Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine and the Star-Spangled Banner Flag House to the Edgar Allan Poe House and Federal Hill, there is so much to explore. Each period in America’s march from a British colony to industrial powerhouse can be discovered along our Belgian-block streets, on our national historical trails and scenic byways, in our tiny row houses, and in our mansions of the gilded-age.
