Lady Baltimore's moving plans have changed. Once she comes down from her 190-year perch atop the Battle Monument overlooking Courthouse Square - the scaffolding is up and the project is underway - she will take up a new, indoor residence at the Maryland Historical Society Museum and Library in Mount Vernon, society officials said. An earlier plan to relocate the marble statue, which honors the Battle of North Point and the bombardment of Fort McHenry in 1814, had called for it to be relocated to the Walters Art Museum , but Lady Baltimore was too heavy for the museum's floors.

" But for those willing to put in some effort, the society has almost a million pictures of buildings from the city and beyond.
