"Ever Lovely Evergreen"

The first thing that most people notice when they drive through Evergreen is that, unlike most Baltimore neighborhoods, there are few if any row houses. Instead, most of the homes, built around the turn of the previous century, were single family, freestanding homes that were designed to cater to the needs of Baltimore’s burgeoning middle class community. During the early decades of the 20ths century, you’d regularly see husbands leaving early in the morning for blue collar and service type work while their wives hung out laundry or chatted with neighbors. At that time two different railroad stations, now gone, allowed men to work in just aobur any part of the city in which they could find jobs.
Evergreen still caters to middle class adults today, although there are fewer children in the homes than there once was. In fact, almost half of the residents are single and most work in managerial or other types of professions.
There are a few neighborhood businesses, most of them small restaurants.
Overall, Evergreen is probably one of the nicest neighborhoods in Baltimore, and continues to attract more and more up and coming professionals each year.
