Baltimore is a brilliant, beautiful city with a magnificent manufacturing legacy. It birthed the bottle cap, the railroad, and legions of Liberty ships. The twists of history have deleted some of that legacy, but remnants of that industrial power still remain all over town. Open Works sits in the heart of one of Baltimore’s original manufacturing districts, a stone’s throw from the old Crown Cork and Seal complex and the former Lebow Brothers Clothing factory.
