Still looking for a great way to spend this Mother’s Day? Make it a relaxing one with the 43rd Annual Historic Harbor House Tour of Fell’s Point. The tour consists of about a dozen houses, including such “perennials” as the Robert Long House and Colonial Garden, the Thomas Lamdin House, and “The Palace on Dallas.” The other homes will include an assortment of Fell’s Point residences ranging from cozy historic houses with beautiful urban gardens to dramatic, light-filled contemporary homes. Docents will be available at each location to further educate guests on the history of the home and the style and unique characteristics found within, as well as the story of the owners. That being said, the tour is self-guided, so you can take the time you need and go at your (and mom’s) own pace.
Not only is the tour a fantastic way to spend Mother’s Day, it’s also a fundraiser, benefiting The Preservation Society. Tickets are $15.00 per person in advance and $20.00 the day of. It’s a worthy cause, since these are the folks who do such an amazing job keeping Baltimore’s two oldest maritime communities—Federal Hill and Fell’s Point— intact and gloriously well-preserved. Surely, mom will be proud to support such a cause, and delighted to spend the day checking out some of the city’s most beautiful historic residences.
Tickets to the Mother’s Day Home and Garden Tour can be purchased at various locations, or online. The tour takes place Sunday, May 11 from 11 a.m.- 5 p.m. around Fell’s Point.
