"History on Parade"

Located in both Baltimore City and Baltimore County, Bellona-Gittings is an elegant tribute to Baltimore’s historic past. Architecture lovers can stroll down its streets during the spring and early fall and bask in the beauty of every style home from Federal Revival to 1950s Ranch. These homes tell a story of Baltimore during the 100 years following the Civil War, as better and better transportation allowed citizens to move further from the center of town.

The first wave of this move toward suburbanization began when street cars were built in the city during the Civil War. It continued through the advent of the first automobiles and reached its height of design and comfortable living during the post-war baby boom of the 1950s.

Today the neighborhood carries the well-respected designation of Bellona-Gittings Historic District. While its architectural interest keeps home prices steady, this is not a neighborhood for those wanting to do a lot of renovating. Many and convoluted rules govern what can and cannot be done to the homes within the district. So, if you love and respect the past, this could be the place for you. If you are more inclined to “do your own thing,” look elsewhere.
