Federal Hill in Baltimore Maryland

 

Historic Rowhomes NeighborhoodBaltimore's Federal Hill neighborhood is steeped in history dating back to the 18th Century as a maritime and commercial hub.  During the first half of the 20th Century, many working class families moved to the area and called Federal Hill home.  Many of today's residents have family ties to the neighborhood dating back two and three generations.


As Baltimore's Inner Harbor area went through a revival and its popularity grew, Federal Hill began to struggle.  In 2000, Federal Hill Main Street was formed to revitalize the area's historic business district and to breathe life back into the area.  Historic buildings received a facelift, neighbors worked side by side to beautify their community, long-time community members helped newcomers feel at home.

Federal Hill residents are proud of their neighborhood's  past and look forward to a thriving and vibrant future.
