History at Risk
In its final fifth season, the History at Risk web video series focused 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. In 2018 when Season 5 aired, their future was uncertain — only one of the two buildings was open and the other sat empty.
