The Union Square Christmas cookie tour, now in its fifth year provides an insider's look at one of Baltimore's most architecturally distinguished and historically significant communities.
Residents of the Victorian neighborhood that H. L. Mencken called home will not only open their houses to visitors, but will serve holiday cookies made from their own recipes. This year's tour will be held next Sunday (Dec. 9) from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Included will be 27 houses, many of them restored by their owners to their original 19th century appearance.
Admission is $7, and includes a tour booklet giving a history and description of each house, and the homeowner's cookie recipe. Tickets will be for sale at Steuart Hill Elementary School, on South Gilmore Street across from Union Square Park.
