On Sunday, October 17, the community of Savage, MD is hosting the annual Savage 7K Run/1 Mile Historic Walk. Funds raised from the race go to support renovations at the historic Carroll Baldwin Hall, a 99-year-old landmark that is still the heart of the community. Monies raised from this year's race will go towards improvements to the stage as we prepare to host theatrical events and celebrate our centennial.

Course marshals are needed to guide runners at the intersections. Snacks and coffee provided in advance.

Please see our FB Event, https://www.facebook.com/events/942627006485676, for details and information about the run /walk.

Mission Statement

This mission of the Carroll Baldwin Memorial Institute, Inc. is to preserve and maintain the Carroll Baldwin Hall, a historic landmark, for the people of the Savage community for continued use for social, educational, and recreational activities.

Description

Carroll Baldwin Memorial Hall was built in 1921-22 to honor the life of Carroll Baldwin, the beloved supervisor of Savage Mill until his death in 1918.

The Hall, a Maryland Historical Trust site, is a two-story structure built of local materials. The signature stonework of the exterior is river stone from the nearby Little Patuxent River, and was reportedly moved to the site via mule-pulled wagons.

The Richardsonian Romanesque-style building was constructed "for the welfare and happiness of the whole community." For many years, the Hall hosted movie screenings and staged performances in the upper level, and housed a bowling alley in the basement. From 1966 to 1991 it served as the Savage Branch of the Howard County library system. Learn more in the Historical Marker Database.

Carroll Baldwin Hall still functions as a community center today. In recent years, it has undergone extensive renovations to ensure it will continue to serve as a focal point of the community.
