Monuments & Memorials

One of Baltimore’s oldest nicknames is the Monumental City. That’s because from George Washington to Edgar Allan Poe, Frank Zappa to Cal Ripken, if they’ve played a big role in Baltimore city life, we’ve likely erected a monument in their honor. While strolling our streets, you’ll meet Thurgood Marshall in the Inner Harbor, George Washington – if you care to climb to greet him – in Mount Vernon and Francis Scott Key in Bolton Hill. Where else can you run into all of these famous people in one afternoon?
