After years of searching for a location for our exhibits, the Baltimore Immigration Memorial, Inc. organization partnered with the Locust Point Community Church UCC, to establish a museum in the church-owned Immigration House at 1308 Beason Street. This building was built in 1904 for newly arrived European immigrants who needed temporary housing before moving on to their final destinations or finding work and permanent housing in Baltimore.
At our museum you will learn about Baltimore’s immigration history in the 19th and early 20th centuries, the importance of Baltimore as a major port of entry for immigrants to the United States, and about the various ethnic groups that started their American journeys here.
