Hamilton-Lauraville Neighborhoods

There is a long and rich history surrounding the Hamilton-Lauraville Neighborhoods dating back to the late 1800’s.  Nestled in the northeastern corner of Baltimore City we began our history as a farming community and we have come full circle.  Today we are rich in urban farming and farm-to-table restaurants   Hamilton-Lauraville is a short commute to downtown, Johns Hopkins University and Hospital, Morgan State University, Towson University, Penn Station and the 95 – 695 beltways.

As you travel the tree-lined streets, you have the feeling of stepping back in time to a place where neighbors know and care about each other.  The area is noted for its unique architecture, spacious yards, front porches and friendly neighbors.  Our neighborhoods have much to offer our diverse residents; and have many affordable homes in a variety of styles.

Residents can walk to our award winning restaurants, a children’s bookstore, a new bakery, theaters, galleries, organic food market, the Tuesday Farmer’s Market and much more along Harford Road, our main commercial district.  It is no wonder families are choosing to move here and plant roots.

But what really makes a neighborhood great?  It’s been said …”great schools make great neighborhoods.”  Hamilton-Lauraville Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative (HLHNI) partners with three excellent schools: City Neighbors Charter Schools, Hamilton Elementary Middle School and St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School to form the Northeast Schools Alliance.  NeSA is a unique alliance of schools within Baltimore City bringing together a traditional zoned pubic school, a public charter school, and a parochial school all working together for the benefit of the total community and their respective student populations.

HLHNI makes moving into our neighborhoods even more appealing.  Young families not only have excellent schools to choose from but Healthy Neighborhoods can help with low-cost loan products for purchasing, refinancing and for making home improvements.  There are matching grants for loan products, block project grants to maintain our lovely communities along with technical and practical support to make sure everything goes smoothly.

We continue to add to our rich history by encouraging residents to make home improvements and attracting new home buyers and families looking for quality schools.


We invite you  to be a part of our future.


Hamilton-Lauraville:  a great place to raise your family, educate your children and grow your business.
