Mural at Bank St & Highland Ave

Highlandtown is located in southeast Baltimore and was founded in 1866 as Snake Hill. The name  Highlandtown  emerged a few years later because of the sweeping views of Baltimore City. Today, Highlandtown is a diverse community with a vibrant arts district. Our community was the  inspirational setting for  the  hit  movies and Broadway musical Hairspray.  We are  proud  to be part of this terrific neighborhood.
