Seton Hill, Baltimore, MD - Open House Tour

Real Estate Agent with Long & Foster Hampden MD RE License 579412

Seton Hill is approximately ten blocks north of Oriole Park at Camden Yards, and is near Walter's Art Gallery, Baltimore Symphony, the University of Maryland and Maryland General Hospital. Seton Hill is also very close to Baltimore's much improved Lexington Market.  Seton Hill National Historic District is bordered by Eutaw Street on the East, Franklin Street on the South, Pennsylvania Avenue and Orchard Street on the West, and McCulloh and Monument Streets on the North.  Seton Hill's Zip Code is 21201.

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.

I'd love to go on an open house tour in a neighborhood like that. Then I'd probably spend hours in the local library or the public records division of the courthouse trying to find out more information about the oldest houses.

June - These are great homes! 

We just don't see that type of architecture in our area!  It would be a pleasure to spend some time looking at home like these!

Hi June -- I've only been to the Inner Harbor on weekends having lived in the DC area in the past -- Seton Hall sounds fascinating and full of history.  I could look (inside and out) at old buildings and homes all day.

June - I really liked hearing about this area, and an open house of the variety of properties sounds great.
