Why the West Side Matters: Linda Shevitz, Maryland Women's Heritage Center

The Maryland Women's Heritage Center at 39 West Lexington Street is located on the first floor of the historic Baltimore Gas and Electric Company Building. The corner of Lexington and Liberty Streets is particularly important in the history of the Maryland suffrage movement as the location of a huge open air rally organized by Edith Houghton Hooker (1879-1949).
