Highlandtown

Highlandtown has been a neighborhood of immigrants since 1866 and remains that way today. Irish, Germans, Poles, Italians and Latinos have made their homes here, and the many restaurants and shops reflect this international heritage. Today, Highlandtown boasts an eclectic mix of artists, ethnicities, long-time residents and newcomers, and blue-collar, green-collar and white-collar workers who share a common belief, like the residents before them, that Highlandtown is the heart of Baltimore. Highlandtown, originally known as Snake Hill, was founded as a residential community in 1866 by an Irish immigrant named Thomas McGuiness. For years he was the only resident here, laying out streets and planting trees, but eventually butchers and brewers found their way to the little village. They changed its name to Highland Town, because one could see for miles from the central part of the neighborhood. The area was home to beer gardens and taverns but did not a part of Baltimore City until it was annexed in 1918 (when Baltimore City tripled in size). At that time most local residents referred to the rest of Baltimore as “West Highlandtown” and that attitude is still strong today. Truly international – from the German Beer Gardens in 1889 to the Italian immigrants who built Our Lady of Pompei in 1925 to the more recent wave of Latino and African immigrants, the neighborhood is a true melting pot. You can hear a wide variety of languages spoken here in Highlandtown, and that is special.
