Charles Village is a vibrant, walkable neighborhood in north central Baltimore.  Many amenities make Charles Village attractive for a socially and culturally diverse population from young singles, families to empty nesters. Developed as Baltimore’s first garden suburb with front yards, Charles Village is a neighborhood of handsome brick rowhouses with flat facades or porch fronts, and apartment buildings from the 1890s to the 1920s.  Charles Village/Abell was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. 


Tree-lined streets, beautiful gardens and Olmsted-designed Wyman Park Dell add natural beauty… while stores, restaurants, services and cultural resources within easy walking bring Charles Village residents the best of urban convenience. In 2008, the American Planning Association designated Charles Village as one of 10 Great Places: Neighborhoods in America.  


Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore Museum of Art, MedStar Union Memorial Hospital, Enoch Pratt Library Waverly Branch, and strong community-supported public schools make Charles Village a great place to live, work and study. The Village Learning Place, 29th Street Community Center, Charles Village Rec League, and numerous churches provide activities for all ages and interests.   Throughout the area, restaurants, retail stores, and service businesses are expanding to make Charles Village ever more convenient and vibrant.  Welcome to Charles Village—a great place to live, work, study and play.
