Charles Village— A Victorian Community in the Heart of the City Walking Tours

 

Enjoy these walking tours as a healthy and safe activity to do—  as the weather warms, our cabin fever climbs and our need for physical distancing continues.

One of America's best-preserved collection of late Victorian townhouses and civic structures is located within Baltimore City's greater Charles Village community.  These historic and beautiful houses— with other architectural landmarks, abundant green space, carefully planned commercial areas, historic sites, hidden gardens, numerous ethnic restaurants, several thriving business districts, and interesting residents— make the greater Charles Village community a unique and significant part of Baltimore's past, present, and future.

Crime Watch Number

Apply for a confidential Baltimore crime watch number here. A Crime Watch number, also known as a “Block Watch” number, is a unique, seven-digit number issued to you by the Baltimore Police Department. It is a confidential identification number that you give to the 9-1-1 Operator after dialing “9-1-1” to make sure that the police officer responding to your call does not come to your door. Once you give your Crime Watch number to the 9-1-1 Operator, your name, phone number and address will not be given to the police, and the police officer in the responding patrol car will not know who made the 9-1-1 call or the phone number or address that it came from.
