The Heart of Baltimore … One of the glories of Baltimore - “Queen City of the Chesapeake” - is Mount Vernon Place which nestles quietly in the heart of the metropolis. The Doric column was the first monument started in honor of George Washington, but was not the first one completed. That honor goes to the stone tower near Boonsboro, Maryland. The cornerstone of the Baltimore monument was laid on July 4, 1815, but the monument was not completed until 1829. The statue of Washington faces the bustling harbor where ships from all over the world have docked since the middle of the eighteenth century.
