Description

In honor of Black History Month and a new interpretive tour, Homewood Museum is offering free admission for the entire month of February. The revamped tour draws on new scholarship to tell the stories of Charles and Harriet Carroll, for whom Homewood was constructed in 1801, and two enslaved families, the Rosses and the Conners, who labored for the Carrolls in the first quarter of the 19th century 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 reveals how the fates of all three families became inextricably linked, in ways both typical and unexpected. The tour also contextualizes their experiences 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 residents and the complex society in which they sought fulfillment.
