    FREE GUIDED TOURS | Tuesday-Sunday during February

    Price: FREE for individuals and groups under 7

    Tours of Homewood depart on the hour and half-hour (last tour at 3:30 p.m.). Advance reservations appreciated by calling 410.516.5589. Groups over 6 require advance reservation.

    In honor of Black History Month Homewood Museum is launching a new interprative tour and offering FREE admission for the entire month of February. The revamped tour, titled "Families at Homewood," 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 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.
