Do you like history? Do you like geeks? Do you like clubs? Then this group is for you! The History Geek Club is for people who love history and want to explore historic sites (and more!) in the DMV...and farther afield if there's interest. From historic homes, museums, and battlefields to movies and books with history themes - this is the club where you can get your History Geek groove on. A warning - this isn't a club for people who want to discuss their history dissertations or contemplate history's big moments - this club is all about having a good time! Please join us! It'll be historically fun!
Situated in Ellicott City, on a hilltop overlooking the Patapsco River Valley, the Patapsco Female Institute was founded in 1837 as an elegant finishing school for young women. The stabilized ruins of the Greek revival structure are open for tours on Saturdays and Sundays at 1:30.
