Get to know Baltimore and its history this weekend. Doors Open Baltimore is offering open-house events at 60 sites across the city, from Lord Baltimore Hotel to 18th century homes in Fells Point. We speak to organizers Victoria Kraushar-Plantholt and David Ditman about exploring the city. The events are free and organized by the American Institute of Architects Baltimore Chapter and the Baltimore Architecture Foundation.
