    In honor of Black History Month Homewood Museum is launching a new interprative tour and offering FREE admission for the entire month of February. The revamped tour, titled "Families at Homewood," draws on new scholarship to tell the stories of Charles and Harriet Carroll, for whom Homewood was constructed in 1801, and two enslaved families, the Rosses and the Conners, who labored for the Carrolls in first quarter of the 19th century, and whose stories have never before been told in such detail. 

    Using Homewood's exquisitely restored period rooms and its world renowned collections, the tour reveals how the fates of all three families became inextricably linked, in ways both typical and unexpected. The tour also contextualizes their experiences within early republic Baltimore, when slavery and ideals of liberty shaped and steered the young nation. 

    Whether you are new to Homewood or have experienced it before, this new tour provides fresh insights about Homewood's first residents and the complex society in which they sought fulfillment.

    Five years ago, Homewood Museum was given a portrait of Charles Carroll of Carrollton, the father of Charles Carroll of Homewood and a signer of the Declaration of Independence. When it arrived, the painting was in need of extensive restoration but was thought to be in the style of—or possible a long-lost portrait by—famed 19th-century American portraitist Chester Harding. Now, with work completed and the painting hanging proudly in the museum's Drawing Room, Homewood hosts this exclusive reveal party in appreciate of the JHU Museums' upper-level members.  

    Listen as fine art conservator Heather Smith, frame conservator Bill Adair, and JHU art history major Julianne Schmidt describe the restoration process and discuss what secrets the portrait has yielded—and what answers remain elusive. Drinks and hors d'oeuvres served.
