Whether it’s every day for work or occasionally for jury duty, most of us walk the streets of downtown Baltimore without realizing the wealth of grotesques, carvings and statuary that abounds throughout the core of downtown.
With help from Baltimore historians Fred Shoken, Wayne Schaumburg and Matthew Mosca, Baltimore Heritage has put together a tour to explore the architecture, serious and whimsical and the wonderful history in the city center. From noble lions and hellish fiends, from neo-Egyptian sphinxes and squirrels of Renaissance Italy, you’ll be amazed to learn about the veritable menagerie of wildlife downtown.
