Presented by the Homewood Museum

Historical structures vital to the streetscape that survive from the period of Frederic Douglass’s residence in Fell’s Point include two small wooden houses on South Wolfe Street that represent over 200 years of Baltimore history. Preservation architect Bryan Blundell will discuss construction of the houses around 1797 and their role in providing housing and opportunities for free African-American ship caulkers from the 1830s to the 1850s. Blundell is president of the architecture preservation firm Dell Corporation and has been passionate about preserving the Caulkers’ Houses since 2004.

5:30 p.m. Reception at Homewood Museum
6:30 p.m. Lecture at Gilman Hall (in Room 50, the Marjorie M. Fisher Hall)
