The Opening Reception on Sunday evening will take place at the Maryland Historical Society (MDHS), the premier institution for Maryland state history, located less than two miles from the hotel. Transportation will be provided.
Founded in 1844, MDHS is the state’s oldest continuously operating cultural institution. With more than 350,000 objects and seven million books and documents, this institution now serves upward of 100,000 people through its museum, library, press and educational programs.
The MDHS museum features an incredible collection that celebrates Maryland’s rich and diverse history, from 18th- and 19th-century paintings and silver to 20th-century objects of everyday life. A special exhibit will be shown commemorating the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 and exploring Maryland’s role in that war.
