DGS to Rehab Baltimore Streetcar Museum's Machine Shop

The Board of Estimates signed off January 15, 2020, on paying Baltimore architecture firm Gant Burnett to begin the process of rehabbing the Baltimore Streetcar Museum’s machine shop building.

DGS’ Historic Preservation Officer, Jackson Gilman-Forlini, told the Baltimore Business Journal that this is the first step “to address some of the failing building systems” at the shop. Work on the building will include replacing metal siding, roof work, and repairing of the building’s structural framing. Paving and parking at the site will also be addressed.

The Baltimore Streetcar Museum, located at 1901 Falls Road, is just one of fourteen historic City-owned properties DGS maintains. Visitors can view the 10 historic streetcars, check out the transit research library, and even ride the streetcars on the weekends.
