Occupying an entire city block in the Mount Vernon district of Baltimore, the society’s mission is to “collect, preserve, and interpret the objects and materials that reflect Maryland’s diverse cultural heritage.” The Society is home to the original manuscript of the Star Spangled Banner and publishes a quarterly titled “Maryland Historical Magazine.” Visitors to the museum will find major exhibits of famous Maryland paintings, silver, furniture, maritime history and children’s toys from the last 300 years. The library houses over seven million documents related to Maryland history.
Fun Fact: Christine lived across the street from the venue for 2 years (and never went in!)
Christine has lived in Baltimore City since 2011, and grew up in Baltimore County (Rosedale). John moved to Baltimore after his time in the service in 2012. We both love this city and are delighted to be able to have our wedding here.
In order to help you get to know the city, we've created a little guide of our favorite bars, restaurants, things to do, as well as important places like grocery stores & pharmacies. We hope this helps you enjoy your time here!
