Welcome to Baltimore! This self-guided in-app audio tour is a real catch for history buffs as it narrates the city's past in detail across downtown historic sites. You will start the tour looking up at the hallmark Bromo Seltzer Tower, and get to know how a local pharmacist gave the city the Florence-like appearance. Baltimore is all about creepy stories! Go to Davidge Hall and get startled by how the early medical students procured cadavers for dissections back in the 19th century. Then, you will hear some gravedigger tales at the haunted Westminster Church and Cemetery, and see a monument to macabre writer Edgar Allan Poe who is buried there. After that, the tour will take you to the elegant Mount Vernon neighborhood and introduce you to one of the city's most prominent benefactors, Enoch Pratt. At the sett-stone square nearby, you will see the first monument to America's first president. Don't miss browsing the Walters Art Museum's premier collection of international art and artifacts next door! After enriching spiritually, you might want to summon the spirits in the city securing the story of the Ouija Spirit Board. You will finish the tour at the Enoch Pratt Free Library, a splendid gift from Enoch Pratt to Baltimoreans, and be amazed by the architecture and interiors of Baltimore's "haven in the city". Join this tour and relive the action-packed stories behind the old iconic facades of Baltimore!
