catch of the day fish (2)It’s official. The holidays are in full swing, and we never miss a holiday open house, a light lighting, or a cookie tray if we can help it. So we’re marking our calendars for this Thursday, December 5th, when the Baltimore Historical Society will host a debut party for Lady Baltimore (the iconic statue) and a Holiday Open House in conjunction with the Baltimore Monument lighting. In attendance will be Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, speaking about the 190-year old Lady Baltimore statue and its significance to our city. And of course, it wouldn’t be a holiday open house without cookies, cider, hot cocoa, and a Christmas carol sing-a-long.

When you attend the open house this Thursday, you’ll enjoy free admission to the Historical Society’s fabulous museum. You’ll also get to see the recreated Star-Spangled Banner flag, which was stitched completely by hand by volunteers from Maryland and around the world, this past summer. It’s on view for one night only, so don’t miss your chance to witness this incredible accomplishment. From 5-9, you can also rub elbows with living history characters and the folks at the Historical Society who work all year to make it such an exciting, vibrant place to preserve (and learn about) Maryland’s rich history.  “It’s an evening of fun the whole family can enjoy,” Historical Society President Burt Kummerow says, “So come in out of the cold and step back in time at MDHS!”

The Open House at The Maryland Historical Society will run from 4pm-9 pm n Thursday, December 5th. For more information, visit www.mdhs.org.
