From elites like William and Henry Walters, Johns Hopkins, and Enoch Pratt, to extraordinary slaves like Patty Atavis, and even the infamous assassin John Wilkes Booth, the dead at Greenmount Cemetery tell a rich and fascinating story of the growth of Baltimore. On Saturday, October 27 from 12- 2:30 p.m., Baltimore Heritage will partner with the Maryland Historical Society and Greenmount Cemetery for a rare and special treat: lunch discussion of the famous cemetery followed by a tour led by Greenmount guide Wayne Schaumburg.
The program will begin with lunch and talk of some of the Marylanders buried at Greenmount led by curators at the Maryland Historical Society using items in the Society’s collections. After lunch, the group will drive over to the cemetery to join Baltimore historian and Greenmount guide Wayne Schaumburg for a tour of the cemetery, its ornate grave stones, and its notable inhabitants. Space is limited!
RSVP $40 per person (includes lunch)
