Dickeyville, an historic community in Baltimore,, is hosting its home and garden tour Saturday noon to 4 p.m.
Dickeyville is on Baltimore City's western edge, located between Catonsville and Woodlawn. This old milltown, dating to the late 18th century and refurbished in the 1930s, has been compared by some to a small Ellicott City.
The community is built on the skeleton of an industrial village and three of the original stone dwellings remain, as well as other old structures. Its charm rests in the diversity of the homes and the luxurious gardens tended by its residents.
Visit the Dickeyville website for a map, a list of the 30 homes and gardens and some information about each.
In addition, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra Show House is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. until the end of the month. Twenty-five designers decorated two luxury condos and their patios at the Ritz-Carlton Residences at 801 Key Highway. Admission is $30. Advance tickets, $25, and information: (410) 783-8000 and BSOmusic.org.
