"Suburban life in the city"

Lauraville is another example of an area begun as a suburb of Baltimore in the late 19th century and gradually incorporated into the city limits. It has managed to maintain it's suburban charm while being gradually converted into an urban area. The neighborhood, named after the daughter of a local property owner, is bounded on the south by Herring Run Park and on the west by Mount Pleasant Park. The close proximity of the parkland contributes to Lauraville having a quiet and “green” atmosphere.
Most of the houses date from the 1870s-1920s, the area being mostly developed by the time Lauraville was annexed into the city in 1918. The houses were built by a variety of developers over the years and show different styles and facades. Most houses are detached single-family fame or cedar shingle structures along streets lined with shade trees coveted by the residents of the area.
Neighborhood residents describe the area as safe and quiet, engaging in outdoor activities such as biking, walking and running that take advantage of the nearby parks and the tree-lined streets. An upper-middle class area with a median income almost twice that of Baltimore as a whole, with nearby Morgan State University adding to the professional character to the neighborhood, the area is ideal for professionals, families, singles—anyone looking for a bit of suburban living in the city.
