Enter Your Memory
Please share your memories about Baltimore’s Washington Monument! It could be a memory about climbing to the top on a class trip, visiting with your family or loved ones, celebrating a special event at the monument (wedding photographs, etc.)…or just a fun, entertaining memory you have about Baltimore’s Washington Monument.
Did someone in your family work on the Monument originally, or during its recent restoration? Were they one of the Monument’s many “keepers” or “caretakers” through the years? We’d love to hear the recollections you might have heard.
Were you here during the snowball fight during the January 2016 blizzard? Is the Monument part of your memory of FlowerMart? Did you get engaged at the top (someone has since we reopened in July!)
You can share your memory by uploading text and photos.
Feel free to be conversational and to use the first person: “I remember….” If you know the exact date your memory occurred, please include the date in your story, or, if not, some time reference such as “in the early 1970s,” etc.
If you’d like your name to be displayed at the end of your memory, please add however much of it you’d like to appear, and perhaps your city: “Joan Smith, Baltimore,” or “John, Glen Burnie,” etc.
For questions about the project, or to submit your memories via email, please contact Monument@MVPConservancy.org.
