Opened as a public museum in November 1927, the Flag House is dedicated to preserving the story of Mary Young Pickersgill, craftswoman of the Star-Spangled Banner. At the Flag House, you’ll encounter the historic house furnished to an approximate 1813 appearance, learn about the women in Mary’s household that helped craft the most famous flag to ever fly, and discover how the historic house has acted as a cornerstone of the Jonestown community for more than 220 years.


We are located on the corner of E. Pratt St. and Albemarle St., just north of Little Italy in the Jonestown neighborhood of Baltimore. Our street address is 844 E. Pratt St.

There is free parking available along Albemarle St. with a permit that can be obtained from the Flag House front desk.
