History at Risk
Now in its fifth season, the History at Risk web video series is focusing on the Broadway Markets, covering their rise, importance, decline, and uncertain future. The markets in Baltimore, MD are the largest public market system in the nation and one of the oldest. Built in the 1780’s, the Broadway Markets in Fell’s Point once served as a meeting spot for traders coming to Baltimore. Today, their future is uncertain — only one of the two buildings is open and the other sits empty.
