Annual Meeting 2018: Unlock the Collection

Join us for our 2018 Annual Meeting. This year we are excited to “Unlock the Collection” and offer a glimpse into one of our most prized collections, a select sampling of rarely seen treasures from the deepest vaults of the Maryland Historical Society on exhibit for the first time as a group. You will see documents, photographs, and artifacts spanning the earliest years of the Maryland colony well into the twentieth century. Highlights include letters from George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Robert E. Lee, Charles Dickens, and Helen Keller — even Queen Victoria is represented. The Maryland Historical Society is the custodian of over 1,400 documents penned by famous individuals. Due to their fragile nature, they are seldom on view to the public. Admission is Free. Light refreshments will be served.
