Join us for a hauntingly good time as we walk through Baltimore’s Historic Greenmount Cemetery. Opened in 1839, Green Mount is an early example of an urban-rural cemetery, that is, a cemetery with a park-like setting located close to the countryside. Green Mount is the final resting place of some of Maryland’s most famous, and infamous, figures including Johns Hopkins, Enoch Pratt, William and Henry Walters, Mary Elizabeth Garrett, Betsy Patterson, A.S. Abell, John H. B. Latrobe, A. Aubrey Bodine, John Wilkes Booth, and Elijah Bond, who patented the Ouija Board!
Richard Messick, a Baltimore enthusiast and lifelong resident, is a volunteer researcher and tour guide with Baltimore Heritage, where his focus is on legacy businesses, Lexington Market, and Green Mount Cemetery. Join WLI and Richard Messick on a walk through the Cemetery grounds, highlighting the long history of this property. This is the 5th hike offered by Baltimore’s WLI and all are welcome to join!
A Happy Hour at Guilford Hall Brewery will directly follow the walk. Limited drinks and snacks will be provided with additional options available for purchase, if sponsors can be identified.
