Cool For Much More than the Pig Races (Yes... Pig Races)
Socially and economically diverse, Pigtown (a.k.a. Washington Village) has enjoyed a reinvigoration and central location that is making it increasingly attractive to families and business owners. The neighborhood’s roots as a community for railroad workers in the 1840’s are alive at the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum, located on Pigtown’s north side. Baseball fanatics will know Pigtown as Babe Ruth’s Birthplace. The annual Pigtown Festival brings together the members of this very active community with live music, food, beer and pig races.
