In honor of Black History Month, Homewood Museum will launch its new interpretive tour, "Families at Homewood," and offer FREE ADMISSION for all guided tours during the month of February!
The revamped tour draws on new scholarship to tell the stories of Charles and Harriet Carroll, for whom Homewood was built in 1801, and two enslaved families, the Conners and the Rosses, who labored for the Carrolls and whose stories have never before been told in such detail.
Using Homewood's exquisitely restored period rooms and its world-renowned collections, the tour illustrates how the fates of all three families became inextricably linked in ways both typical and unexpected.
The tour also contextualizes their experience within early republic Baltimore, when slavery and ideals of liberty shaped and steered the young nation. Whether you are new to Homewood or have experienced it before, this new tour provides fresh insights about Homewood's first families and the complex society in which they sought fulfillment.
Thursday, February 28 at 11:00am to 4:00pm
