The annual Maryland House & Garden Pilgrimage (MHGP) returns for five weekends this spring from Saturday, April 27, 2019 through Saturday, May 19, 2019. The 2019 Baltimore City Pilgrimage tour focuses on the 33rd Street Corridor connecting Charles Village to Mayfield. This section of Baltimore City encompasses the 1918 expansion of Baltimore City above North Avenue. The Charles Village neighborhood represents the first of North Baltimore’s Garden Suburbs with its original 1890s Peabody Heights Company development set-backs, offering front yard gardens, and the site of Enoch Pratt’s Library Branch No. 6, now the Village Learning Place. This tour highlights the legacy of Johns Hopkins from the University’s Homewood House on Charles Street to his Clifton Mansion off St. Lo Drive in the City’s Clifton Park. Both Homewood House and Clifton Mansion now shine as the best of the best national landmark restorations. Follow 33rd Street and The Alameda, the Olmsted-designed transverse parkway, to tour a representative Oakenshawe and Mayfield house. In Mayfield, tour the Maryland State Boychoir Center for the Arts facing Norman Avenue and enjoy the historic bells rung on the hour for 5 minutes. In tribute to all mothers on Mother’s Day weekend, the City tour features Mothers’ Garden in Clifton Park for a delightful respite along the way.
