Home to Fort McHenry, The Battle of Baltimore and the birthplace of the writing of our National Anthem “The Star-Spangled Banner,” Locust Point has come a long way from its manufacturing origins.
Locust Point is a quiet neighborhood at the southern end of the South Baltimore peninsula. Formerly an industry-heavy neighborhood that attracted factory workers and immigrants, the neighborhood is now a mix of some of the city's oldest rowhouses and its newest. High-tech offices, luxury apartments and high-rises are scattered among historic, two-story rows. Residents enjoy beautiful views from Fort McHenry Park, the birthplace of our National Anthem, and the convenience of many nearby shopping, dining and nightlife spots.
