Construction began on the Baltimore Immigration Memorial in 2006. The purpose of this memorial is to honor the more than two million immigrants who entered the Port of Baltimore between 1706 and 1914. This is the site of America's "other Ellis Island." You can read more about the memorial and the immigrants who landed on this site at the related webpage.
This cache is part of a series called "Coming to Baltimore" that highlights places of historical or cultural significance to groups that settled in Southeastern Baltimore County and East Baltimore, including the Native Americans, English, Irish, African-Americans, Jews, Italians, Greeks, and Hispanics.
This series is the by-product of a semester-long project that my ENGL101 students completed this semester. They had to conduct research into each of these groups and identify these historic sites. Thanks goes to the CCBC Geocachers for assisting with placement of the series. Special thanks also goes to HKSFARM for generously archiving one of his nearby caches so that I could place this one.
