Join the Howard County Historical Society for this all day trip aboard a comfortable Eyre Bus that leaves the parking lot near the HCHS Museum and the Circuit Courthouse in old town Ellicott City promptly at 9am and returns at 5pm.
The bus tour will begin at the Maryland Historical Society where we will see the original “Star-Spangled Banner” and receive a guided tour of the extensive exhibit on The War of 1812. We will also pause at the monument to the war which adorns the Baltimore City Seal and flag.
Then we will visit the Flag House of Mary Pickersgill who made the flag that flew over Fort McHenry. Then it’s on to the fort itself for another tour and lunch. Additional sites will include Patterson Park, Northpoint Park where the British landed to attack Baltimore with its army, and nearby Todd’s Inheritance.
Seating on our Eyre Couch is limited so sign up early!
Ticket prices are $75 for HCHS Members and $85 for non-members (includes a box lunch). Tickets can be purchased at upstairs at the HCHS headquarters in the Historical Center at the Miller Branch Library or online until April 26th.
