Did you know?

THE ENGINEERING SOCIETY OF BALTIMORE is the cultural capital for Engineering in the Baltimore Metropolitan area. The Engineers Club of Baltimore was started just a year after the devastating fire of Baltimore in 1904, as a way to develop standards and share information for the subsequent rebuilding of the city. Carrying on the tradition, the ESB has been instrumental in educating countless professionals for half a century. The ESB, housed in the Garrett Jacobs Mansion, is the meeting place for engineering interests in the city and surrounding area.
