Experience 50 of 52: World Trade Center, Baltimore

We visited the World Trade Center in Baltimore for experience 50 of 52. Besides the view, we learned several other interesting facts:

– Johns Hopkins was the first medical school in the country to admit women
– The first battle of the Civil War was fought in Maryland when Union soldiers traveling south were attacked as they switched rail cars in Camden Station
– The WTC is the tallest pentagon shaped building in the world

The WTC contains a 9/11 remembrance memorial for the 68 men, women and children from Maryland who died on 9/11.
