What is Bmore Historic?

Bmore Historic is a participant-led unconference for scholars, students, professionals and volunteers who care about public history, historic preservation and cultural heritage in the Baltimore region. Bmore Historic is an opportunity to connect with local historians, humanities scholars, preservation advocates, museum professionals, archivists, and anyone interested in exploring the vital intersections between people, places and the past in Baltimore and Maryland. We’re bringing people together and you set the agenda.

Students, volunteer preservation activists, Main Street board members, museum docents, educators and others are all encouraged to register and attend.

How much will it cost?
