In the late 1840's, a large number of Irish people migrated to Baltimore, to escape the Great Famine and this site commemorates their arrival and presence in the city. Come by to see where these immigrants lived and worked. Get a sneak peek into their lives through the five alley houses at the site, and visit B&O Railroad, where they worked. All these places are located at the same historical district. If your curiosity, about the immigrants, isn't satisfied, then visit other sites nearby like the Hollins Street Market and the Apostle Church and Cemetery.
