About

The Peale Center for Baltimore History and Architecture will help people see Baltimore in a new light by enabling the city’s creators and culture-keepers to produce new and more inclusive narratives of the City, its places, and the diverse people who made Baltimore what it is today.

The Peale Center is a 501©3 tax-exempt, non-profit corporation that began as Friends of the Peale in 2008. In June 2012, the Friends of the Peale and the Baltimore History Center at the Peale, a Maryland non-profit corporation formed by Judge John Carroll Byrnes, joined forces as The Peale Center for Baltimore History and Architecture.

The Peale launched its $5 million capital campaign in 2014. To date, the Center has raised $2,376,000 towards the restoration of the building. The City of Baltimore, the building’s proprietor, kicks off a roof replacement and exterior restoration project in March 2017. Completion of the restoration is expected by 2020.

The Peale Center is located at 225 Holliday Street, Baltimore, MD 21202, across from the Abel Wolman Municipal Building and next door to Zion Church and the Real News Network. The Peale is currently open for special events and is available for rentals.
