Baltimore is a city filled with a wide range of architectural treasures. Some of the city’s most beloved treasures are its historic school buildings, from the castle-like City College to the modernist Patterson Park High. The best architects in the city competed to design these impressive and important public buildings.

Leading this architectural adventure is Meg Fairfax Fielding, a past-president of BAF. Meg loves to explore Baltimore and the surrounding areas. By day, she is the head of the History of Maryland Medicine at MedChi, which was founded in 1799, but on weekends, you might find her on a lonely road on the Eastern Shore searching for a small, ancient church.
