The BIRTHPLACE of AMERICAN RAILROADING
Meet-Up for a Baltimore classic! John Schuster or Mike Washington will meet you at the B&O Museum entrance.
From their website "The B&O Railroad forever changed the course of the city, the nation, and even the world. At the B&O Railroad Museum, visitors can step directly into history as they discover the story of American railroading. For it was here that the First Stone of the railroad and the nation’s first mile of commercial track were laid, where the Mt. Clare Shops produced countless innovations in railroad technology, where E. Francis Baldwin’s iconic Roundhouse still stands, and much more. All aboard – your journey to the birthplace of American railroading begins here!"
When: Wednesday, December 13 at 11:00 am,
