Check Out Baltimore's Historic Sites

Baltimore was settled by the British, and it was once the second-largest port of entry for immigrants.

Today, it is home to several historic sites that attract thousands of locals and visitors alike every year.

Those not to be missed include:

BATTLE MONUMENT

Building of the Battle Monument began on September 12, 1815. It was exactly one year after Baltimore defeated the British in the War of 1812, and the monument recognizes all thirty-nine of the fallen soldiers. Known as the first Egyptian structure in the country to feature a base, it also includes a main column of Roman design.

THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT

The Washington Monument is known as "A Window to the Past, A Doorway to the Future," and it was the first monument dedicated to George Washington. It is 203 years old, making it older than the one in Washington D.C.

The monument proudly stands in an area called "Howard's Woods, and during the 2010 renovation, the Mount Vernon Place Conservancy realized that its cornerstone was filled with coins, old newspapers, and a copy of Washington's farewell speech. They preserved these items so they can be seen by future generations. Visitors can climb the 227 steps to the monument's top Wednesday through Sunday, and ticket reservations are required.

FEDERAL HILL PARK

Federal Hill Park is one of the city's most recognized landmarks, and it's a place "where history abounds and awe is inspired. It features monuments dedicated to Major General Samuel Smith and Lieutenant Colonel George Armistead, as well as the cannons used at Fort Federal Hill during the Civil War.

The park has one of the most iconic views of the Inner Harbor, and it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
