This event took place on August 4, 2021.
Womble Bond Dickinson's Capital Markets attorneys hosted a live virtual tour of the Homewood Museum, a National Historic Landmark.
One of the best-surviving examples of Federal-period Palladian architecture in the nation, Homewood Museum was home to Maryland’s prominent Carroll family. The Carroll family included U.S. senators, a former Governor of Maryland, and the longest living signatory of the Declaration of Independence. In addition to the wealthy Carroll family, the “Families of Homewood” tour focuses on the estate’s three enslaved families: the Ross family, the Connor family and the Castle family.
WBD Host, Shari Bacsardi and Homewood Museum experts guided participants through the museum as if you were attending an in-person event. This tour weaved together the complex and sometimes violent interaction between the individuals and offers new and important context to interpret the current social climate. Participants learned about the museum’s preserved history and the story it tells about the development of Baltimore and America between the years of 1800 and 1950.
