Maryland, from the Willard Hackerman Map Collection

From colonial impressions of the Chesapeake Bay to detailed city plans for guiding Baltimore's rapid expansion, this exhibition features over 30 of the most stunning and historically significant maps of early Maryland. Drawn from the personal collection of the late Baltimore developer, philanthropist, and Johns Hopkins alumnus Willard Hackerman, the maps are brought together with related rare books, objects, and digital "story maps" to reveal the passion of a collector, the early mapping of Maryland, and the potential of combining historical maps with modern data to re-examine the past.

Saturday, March 16 at 10:00am to 1:00pm

The George Peabody Library 17 E. Mount Vernon Place, Baltimore, MD 21202
