Neighborhood Information

Homes For Sale And Lease

In 1867, Charles Village was purchased and divided amongst several builders who would craft merely the outside of homes and allow for the inside to be unique. The neighborhood started as a street car suburb, and continued to grow as a suburb of Baltimore. The community name changed from Peabody Village to Charles Village in 1967, named after the central north and south bound street throughout the 45 city block neighborhood. It was added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1983.
