Seton Hill is Baltimore's oldest neighborhood, and is known as Baltimore's former French Quarter. It is centered around the former St. Mary's Seminary and College, which was founded by Sulpician priests fleeing the French Revolution around 1791. Today Saint Mary's Park is situated where the former Seminary and College once stood. The neighborhood was designated as an Historic and Architectural Preservation District of Baltimore City in 1968, and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. Saint Mary's Park, the heart of Seton Hill, is the largest open green space in downtown Baltimore on the West Side.
Seton Hill is composed of a variety of unique rowhomes. Some are two storey, some are three storey, most have basements. Some of the homes in this area are very compact and pose some challenges for large modern furniture. No where else in Baltimore shares the variety of rowhomes that are available in Seton Hill.
Seton Hill has many small quaint restaurants, small shops and is walking distance to Lexington Market, Penn Station, buses and light rail for an easy commute to DC and anywhere in the City and County.
