Gas light reignited at the Peale just in time for #GivingTuesday!

Thanks to BGE’s Steve Pedri and Mike Borlie, and David Conrad of Conrad’s Ruth Villa, the Peale’s gas lights have been restored to their former brilliance! Two street lights in front of the Peale, and two in the historic back garden, once again shine brightly with gas light.

For #GivingTuesday, the Peale is offering special tours of the first museum purpose-built in the United States and its vintage gas lights. Any donation will help us restore the 1814 building and relaunch the Peale Center for Baltimore History and Architecture as a new kind of urban museum for the 21st century! Join our Charter Donor Family before January 1, 2018 and we’ll be in touch to arrange your visit.

The Peale is based in the first museum to be purpose-built in the United States, designed by architect Robert Cary Long Sr. and opened by artist Rembrandt Peale in 1814. It is a building of many firsts, and today in the creative spirit of its founder is relaunching as an innovative Center to celebrate the unique history of Baltimore, its people and their buildings through the authentic stories of the City. Currently under renovation, the Peale is open for special events and occasional tours.
