OUR MISSION

 

PRESERVATION: Baltimore City Historical Society promotes the study, presentation, and appreciation of history of our city. We work with Baltimore historians to sponsor programs on city history and help museums and universities support their collections of historical documents, records, and artifacts.

EDUCATION: We’re dedicated to helping residents and visitors learn about of our city’s defining moments – and understand Baltimore’s historical and cultural significance. We encourage everyone to take a closer look at the familiar historic sites, notable people, and diverse neighborhoods that are part of everyday life in Baltimore.

COMMUNITY: Through our website, events, archives, and social media, we strive to create a gathering place for those who want to explore and celebrate Baltimore’s rich history and cultural heritage. And we invite everyone to share stories, ask questions, or offer insights by contacting us here.

June 21, 2018 * Deborah R. Weiner Co-author, On Middle Ground: A History of the Jews of Baltimore (The Johns Hopkins University Press, Spring, 2018)

On Middle Ground: The Jews of Baltimore  Baltimore’s unique status as both a border city and an immigrant port profoundly shaped the historical experience of its Jewish population. Exploring how Jews negotiated their place in this environment sheds light on one of the city’s largest ethnic groups and also provides fresh a perspective on Baltimore’s development.
