Reservoir Hill Historic District

Certified in 2004

Reservoir Hill, a 32-block area, is home to the most diverse, intact collection of late-19th- and early-20th-century urban architecture in Baltimore City. The area is architecturally significant because of the range of residential building types located there and how they reveal housing trends in Baltimore City from the period of 1870 to 1940. Virtually every street in this community offers an array of eclectic styles of architecture ranging from Italianate row houses to Renaissance Revival apartment buildings to free-standing Victorian and Queen Anne style houses. Among the notable non-residential buildings in the neighborhood are two synagogues, a church and a former streetcar barn.
