A Day at Clifton

Clifton.jpg

In 1814 The Clifton Mansion, located in Clifton Park in Northeast Baltimore, was the home of Captain Henry Thompson, but today it is the headquarters for Civic Works, a local nonprofit that strengthens the Baltimore community through skill building and volunteerism.

On October 11, Civic Works, with support from the Maryland Humanities Council, presents the free event "A Day at Clifton," offering tours of the newly renovated building and bringing the mansion’s history to life, with music, historic reenactments, costumes, and more.  John Ciekot of Civic Works and Johns Hopkins of Baltimore Heritage tell us more.
