Hamilton-Lauraville

The Main Drag

Harford Road once served as a pathway for farmers to transport their goods in the 1700s. Today it is the central hub of the neighborhood filled with quaint restaurants like Maggie’s Farm, Zeke’s Coffee, Emma’s Tea Spot, Silver Queen Café and Red Canoe Café. In addition to food, there is a colorful array of artistic expression. Check out Annie Howe Papercuts to learn the art of papercutting, Hamilton Gallery, Charmed Life Gallery, a combination tattoo parlor and art gallery, the Strand Theater Company, where female works are presented by female actors, and Four Hour Day Lutherie where you can learn to build your own musical instrument and put on a show.

A Strong Community

The Hamilton-Lauraville neighborhood prides itself on being very community focused. Every week locals and visitors flock to the Tuesday Market in Lauraville (located at 4500 Harford Road) for fresh produce, food, handcrafted jewelry and more. And each year the Hamilton Street Festival attracts visitors with musical performances, local vendors and activities for children of all ages.

Parks and Recreation

Away from the traffic lies Herring Run Park in Northeast Baltimore, a beloved greenspace defined by the long stream that travels through it. The park contains several amenities for families to take advantage of when the weather is warm, including picnic benches, hiking trails, a fishing area, a basketball court and three playgrounds. Adjacent to the park is Lake Montebello, a picturesque spot with a surrounding path perfect for bikers, walkers and runners alike just off of Harford Road.
