One reviewer said "nice walk but not much else" .... But that's just the tip of the iceberg. It is a lovely square that once was the epicenter of elite Baltimore. The mansions that line the square nowhouse cultural treasure troves like The Walters Art Museum and the Peabody Conservatory. Take a peek inside the latter to see the lovely library. If you are lucky to get to peer inside th Engineer's club you'll see a once private home, now a private club, with all its magnificent flourishes (Tiffany windows, ornate wood carving). Sit by the fountains, have a picnic or attend a Saturday morning free yoga class on the lawn. Watch for concerts and movies in the summer, the Book Festival in September and many other events that are free to all. Do look at the monuments .... an interesting array of heroes like George Washington and important -- though certainly dubious figures from our past such as Chief Justice Roger Taney-- most noted for the fateful Dred Scot decision that solidified slavery just before the Civil War. What can we say, except -- Baltimore is a complex and intriguing place !
