Tourism Tuesday: The Star-Spangled Banner Flag House

June 28th, 2011 by Alex Fili


Step back in time as you walk through the doors of the house where our country’s Star-Spangled Banner was sewn. Experience first-hand what it was like to live in the 19th century by touring Mary Pickersgill’s residence and place of business.

Although any day is perfect for a historical adventure, if you choose to tour the house on a Saturday you will be joined by living history interpreters, including Mary Pickersgill and her African American apprentice, Grace Wisher. So head on over to this National landmark for an entertaining and educational afternoon without putting a dent in your wallet.

The Flag House is located at 844 East Pratt Street in Baltimore, Maryland.
Tours run 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Tuesday to Saturday.
