Notes
Survey number HAER MD-86-A
Building/structure dates: 1908 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1984 subsequent work
Significance: Designed by Oscar F. Lackey and constructed in 1908-1910, the bulkheads on Piers 4, 5, and 6 in the Baltimore Inner Harbor were among the first reinforced concrete structures erected in seawater in the United States. These and other early concrete piers in the U.S. pioneered the acceptance of reinforced concrete in American harbors. The solid piers, consisting of filled reinforced concrete bulkheads, played a significant role in the evolution from timber pile to reinforced concrete for seawater construction.
