Baltimore Enters the Industrial Age: 19th Century, Century of Change
Tues, September 29 | 7-8 PM
BMI Senior Educator Jack Burkert will present the history of Baltimore in the 19th century and its rise as an industrial city. When the 19th century opened, a few villages destined to become Baltimore were modest centers of trade. At first dependent on Europe for both trade and financing, these villages left behind their agrarian roots as immigrants flowed in, village centers merged and Baltimore became an important business and industry center. This is a preview of one of the museum’s virtual presentations, available for adult and senior groups to book this fall. Learn more here.
Thurs, October 15 | 7-8 PM
