The Museum’s creation is credited to Howard and Elsie Weldon. The Weldons were avid car enthusiasts, which permitted them to collect many auto parts, licence plates and cars. In addition, Howard was very interested in starting a museum that would detail the beginnings and growth of the Baltimore area.
Howard approached the Griley memorial Library in 1976 with the idea of starting a museum in the basement of the Griley Home located at 209 E Market St – and thus the Baltimore Area Community Museum began.
Howard Weldon and the Library Board, which included Howard Brown, Chalmer Haynes and Ed Sands began a fund to construct a new museum building. The group of men raised the proposed $40,000 plus from the community of 3200 residents.
The museum was built and the museum contains recreations of a grocery store, living room and parlor, dentists office, doctors office and many displays of tools, school items, and more.
The Museum Board determined an addition needed to be built in 1992, and thanks to a generous donation from Ed Sands – was dedicated in 1993.
The museum operates under the direction of a dedicated museum board. Please visit our Hours of Operation page for information on visiting.
