As revealed in The Baltimore Sun’s article “Historic Gas Lamps of Baltimore,” the year 1816 marked a milestone for Baltimore as the first city in the United States to embrace gas street lamps, revolutionizing the way its residents conducted activities after dusk. Fast forward to 2016, and Light City Baltimore commemorated this luminous legacy with various installations and events, honoring Baltimore’s historical reliance on gas lamps. Delving into the city’s past, the Sun’s archives offer a glimpse into the bygone era of gas lamps, the last of which flickered out in 1957.
Acknowledging the significance of Baltimore’s gas lamp heritage, LampLight Industries endeavors to continue this tradition by incorporating modern technologies while maintaining the charm of the classic gas lamp design. The company’s vision aligns with celebrating the historical relevance of these lamps and ensuring their place in Baltimore’s future.
