Groundhog Day Party – Baltimore Architecture Foundation

Groundhog Day Party – Baltimore Architecture Foundation

Baltimore Architecture Foundation and AIA Baltimore resumed its popular Groundhog Day party in yet another example of cool architecture not usually open to the public. Guests arrived at Baltimore Penn Station, where they then followed a special route to the shindig.

Guests were directed to head upstairs to the mezzanine…
…then, they headed down a hidden hallway…
…which led them to Penn Station’s old switch room – with all the old rail routes outlined on the walls – the site of the evening’s bash.
