Collection Title: Station North Oral History (SNOH)
Inclusive Dates: 2012-2013
Size: 0.2 linear feet
Scope and Contents:
10 oral history interviews, including digital audio, interview transcripts, and photographs of interviewees.
The warehouse at 1601 Guildford Avenue in Baltimore City is currently known as the Cork Factory. After many years as renters, a group of artists and community activists entered into collective ownership of the building in 1997. Their process of working with local government to create a Planned Unit Development and rezone their warehouse for legal residence was a critical phase in the development of the Station North Arts and Entertainment District.
Ten interviews were created by Langsdale Library digital collections librarian, Aiden Faust, between October 2012 and July 2013. All materials were transferred to and maintained by Special Collections from the point of creation. The project was supported by the Baltimore Renaissance Seed Scholars Fund.
