Baltimore Immigration: 150th Anniversary of the Historic Partnership of the B&O Railroad & the North German LLoyd Steamship Companies
Saturday, March 24
11:00am - 5:00pm
The B&O Railroad Museum and Baltimore Immigration Museum are partnering to commemorate an historic moment in American history. From 1850 - 1868 all immigrants to Baltimore City would land at a variety of locations. In 1867, President John Work Garrett of the B&O and Albert Schumacher of the North German Lloyd Company signed an agreement. The B&O would build an exclusive immigration pier in Locust Point, while Lloyd would send at least one steamship per month loaded with immigrants. The first ship, SS Baltimore, arrived at this new pier on March 23, 1868. A large parade was held on Broadway in Fells Point to commemorate this occasion. From that day until World War I, Baltimore welcomed more than 1.2 million immigrants at Piers 8 & 9 in Locust Point, as a result of this partnership. Join us this day to celebrate the 150th anniversary of this historic event. Your ticket includes a formal ceremony, an unveiling of a new commemorative panel, a luncheon, and two speakers at the B&O Railroad Museum. The program concludes with an open house at the Baltimore Immigration Museum.
