Baltimore Immigration Memorial

Are you familiar with the Baltimore Immigration Memorial (BIM)? If not, check out their website at

The project was founded in 1992 to "explore, document and preserve Baltimore's immigration-rich heritage, and to make it available to the public through a range of community and educational initiatives."

The project has several initiatives, which include:
  • walking tours,
  • traveling exhibitions,
  • audio and video tours,
  • research, and 
  • an immigration museum.
The immigration museum in the "Immigration House" is set to open at the end of this year.

Additionally, the BIM is seeking assistance with:
  • fundraising,
  • historical research,
  • themed walking tours, and 
  • administrative support.
They are also seeking document and artifact donations.
