The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond's Baltimore Branch is an operational and regional center for Maryland, the metropolitan Washington D.C. area, northern Virginia, and northeastern West Virginia.
Our diverse staff is a vital part of the Fifth District. We supply coin and currency to financial institutions and work to maintain stability in the financial sector throughout our region. We work with the media to provide information on the local economy and with teachers and students to provide economic education resources. We also work with local elected officials and non-profit organizations to support fair housing initiatives throughout the Fifth District.
We offer group tours of 30 or fewer attendees by appointment. Developed for high school and college students and teachers, our tours seek to reinforce classroom instruction and promote economic education and financial literacy. For more information, please call (410) 576-3441.
Our tours focus on bank operations and monetary policy and may include a video presentation on the functions of the Federal Reserve System upon request. Generally, tours of the Baltimore Branch take 90 minutes to complete, but can be customized based on the special interests of the group. Please note, cell phones and cameras are not permitted inside the building. For more information or to schedule a tour, please call Karen Kokernak in the Economic Education Department at 410-576-3441.
