Irish Railroad Workers Museum-BHHS Homesale Realty

As you view Baltimore homes for sale, you'll discover neighborhoods full of diverse culture cultivated by the many ethnic groups that call our city home. One of these neighborhoods was established by Irish immigrants who fled famine in their own country in the mid-1800s. As these men, women, and children arrived in Maryland, many settled in southwest Baltimore and created a thriving community. Today, residents and visitors can visit sites along the Irish Heritage Walk to learn more about the rich history of Irish-Americans in Baltimore.

  • The Irish Railroad Workers Museum, 918 Lemmon St., Baltimore, MD 21223
    The first stop on your trip to the historic Irish district should be at the Irish Railroad Workers Museum. This block of Lemmon Street was home to the Irish population that immigrated to Baltimore and began work on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. A centerpiece of the district, the Irish Railroad Workers Museum gives you a glimpse into how these men and women lived and worked. Open to visitors on Fridays and Saturdays, the museum features events, exhibits, and demonstrations throughout the year.

  • The B&O Railroad Museum, 901 W. Pratt St., Baltimore, MD 21223
    Located just one block away from The Irish Railroad Workers Museum, the B&O Railroad Museum grants visitors another fantastic look at the roots of Irish culture in southwest Baltimore. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad was established in 1827 and became the first commercial long-distance railroad in the country. Today, the B&O museum is one of the largest and oldest railroad collections in the world. The museum has plenty to see and do for visitors including exhibits, train rides, and activities for kids.

  • St. Peter the Apostle Church, 13 S. Poppleton St., Baltimore, MD 21201
    As the Mother Church of Western Baltimore, St. Peter the Apostle Church was constructed in 1843. Designed to mimic the look of the Athenian temple Theseus, this church was built for the thousands of Irish immigrants that lived in the area working on the railroad. Many of these men worked for free to build the church. Take a step inside, and you can see where baseball legend Babe Ruth was baptized.

  • St. Peter the Apostle Cemetery, 2400 Winchester St., Baltimore, MD 21216
    This twenty-acre plot of land became the St. Peter the Apostle Cemetery in 1851. For years, this cemetery was the final resting place for generations of Irish-Americans. Unfortunately, no organization or group was formally tasked to care for the grounds which led to overgrowth from neglect. Thankfully, a small portion of the cemetery has been restored for public viewing, but the majority of this historical site remains concealed under decades of dust.

  • The Hollins Street Market, 26 S. Arlington Ave., Baltimore, MD 21223
    One of the best ways to get a true taste of Baltimore's Irish culture is to head to The Hollins Street Market. As the oldest Baltimore market still in operation, the Hollins Market first opened in the fall of 1836. Take a trip down to the market and peruse the many vendors that have made this area a popular shopping hub for Baltimore's Irish community.
