(August 15, 2023) With photos and storytelling, we will virtually visit the gravesites of ten Baltimore women, all very different from each other, who lived during Baltimore in the 1800s. Baltimore women of the time were the backbone of families and communities. At the end of their lives, family and friends laid these women to rest in several area cemeteries, including Green Mount, Loudon Park, Mount Auburn, Baltimore Hebrew and New Cathedral.
Some of these women are famous, but you may not know all of the details of their lives. There are others whose stories are just now being told. Every one, in her own way, has had a part in the fabric of Baltimore.
