First Friday Brings Highlandtown to Historic York Inn / Smyser-Bair House

Just off last week's Baltimore Book Fest event at the Inner Harbor Stage (Baltimore Visitor's Center), the Lit and Art Reading Series is at it again!

Next Friday, October 6, from 6 to 9 p.m., join the proprietors of The Historic York Inn / Smyser-Bair House as the popular Lit and Art Reading Series presents an evening of live music, literary readings, original artwork, free snacks, drinks, tours of the mansion, and fun!

Featured talent includes Rafael Alvarez reading from his new book, Basilio Boullosa Stars in the Fountain of Highlandtown (CityLit Press), Bill Hughes, Barbara DeCesare, Eric D. Goodman, and live music by singer-songwriter Roberta Chadderton

Berkshire-Hathaway offers tours of the 1830s mansion, The Smyser-Bair House / Historic York Inn. Step back in time for a tour through history, with hand-carved, gilded Pier mirrors, stained glass, etched glass, hand plasterwork, woodwork, and chandeliers that rival those found in museums. Anchored in York’s historic district since the 1830s, and belonging to the Smyser-Bair family until 1979 (when it was left to the York Historical Trust before becoming a private inn) this home is a rich part of York's history, recently featured in front page news and on national television for its historic charm. (And it could be yours.)

It's all part of York's First Friday festivities.
