The F. Brooke Whiting House & Museum is a 1911 bungalow of stucco plaster that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. George Sansbury, a notable Cumberland architect, designed the boyhood home of F. Brooke Whiting. The home is furnished with family antiques, eclectic collections, and a vast library.
From the establishment of the first shipyard in the 1730s until the mid-19th century, Fells Point was the engine that drove maritime commerce and international politics. Privateers, shipbuilders, immigrants, merchants and sailors sought their fortunes in this waterfront community, home to the world-famous Baltimore clipper schooners. These vessels, known then as pilot-built schooners, were the fastest in the world and carried cargoes both legal and illegal.
The Fire Museum of Maryland is the third largest museum of its kind in the world and offers exhibits on the history of fire fighting, hand- and horse-drawn apparatus, the Great Baltimore Fire of 1904, as well as the reconstruction of Baltimore City's Engine House #8, the only cast-iron fire house in the area.
Throughout the building are videos and DVD's on a variety of fire related themes, as well as interactive programs for children.
