Additional Information

The Star-Spangled Banner Flag House and Museum is the historic home of Mary Young Pickersgill, maker of the Star-Spangled Banner flag that inspired Francis Scott Key to pen our national anthem. Built in 1793 the historic Flag House was established as a museum by the City of Baltimore in 1927 and named a National Historic Landmark in 1970.

The Flag House is restored to an 1813 appearance and houses a collection of period and Pickersgill family objects. The Hoffmeister Buidling is home to our permanent exhibit, Family of Flagmakers, the first exhibit devoted to the life and career of Mary Pickersgill. Learn about life in 1813 and the events surrounding the making of the Star-Spangled Banner as you tour the exhibit and home. Group and school tours available upon request.
