Stroll Historic Harbor House On Mother’s Day

Come spend your Mother’s Day taking a nice relaxing stroll along the Baltimore waterfront.

Presented by The Preservation Society of Federal Hill and Fell’s Point, come enjoy a Historic Harbor House Tour this Sunday May 13 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Fell’s Point Mother’s Day Annual Event showcases the rich history, beautiful homes and gardens of Fell’s Point. It is a self-guided House Tour within the Fell’s Point Historic District located along Baltimore’s dramatic waterfront. Included are a marvelous variety of individual homes, condominiums, and apartments including 18th and 19th Century buildings, conversions of historic warehouses, and newly constructed properties.

The tour includes perennial favorites such as the Robert Long House built ca.1765 that celebrated its 250th anniversary in 2015. It is the oldest surviving residence within the boundaries of old Baltimore City. The Robert Long House connects visitors with the life of an ordinary man working on Baltimore’s waterfront in the 18th Century; adjacent is the authentically recreated Jean Hepner Colonial Garden. Other perennial tour stops are the Thomas Lamdin House built in 1799 by the owner of a shipyard famous for its clipper ships; and the Hollingsworth – Steele House built around 1790, one of Baltimore’s finest surviving examples of Federal architecture. About 90% of the interior woodwork is original.
