This year marks the 20th anniversary of the 2003 Roundhouse Roof Collapse.
Often referred to as the cathedral of American railroading, the B&O Roundhouse here on our property was devastated when the roof collapsed on February 17th, 2003. This collapse heavily damaged the museum’s collection and many of the historic pieces took years of restoration to repair. On this tour, we are going to look at the storied history of this beautiful and compelling structure built by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, the first from its initial design through that fateful night in February and rebuilding to its current glory.
Included with Admission. B&O Members FREE.
