History of Reservoir Hill Told Through Photographs
Local author pens new book on the uniqure history of the Baltimore neighborhood
Baltimore’s Reservoir Hill, known for its uniqueness and architectural significance in a city of over 225 neighborhoods, is an area of tremendous character and historical importance. It has experienced momentous change, from wealthy business leaders who early on built magnificent homes, through generational and religious transitions in the early 1900s, to a precipice of struggle seen in many inner-city neighborhoods in the 1960s and 1970s.
Depending on the year, or even the street, Reservoir Hill has historically been home to the wealthiest residents or those just struggling to survive. Still a diverse neighborhood and home to an eclectic mix of residents, Reservoir Hill provides a most engaging glimpse into the heart of an American city.
Highlights of Reservoir Hill:
• Streets and landmark buildings
• Fountains, gardens and monuments
• Religious, community and family life
• Notable residents
• Business, education and leisure
