"No, Beaver Cannot Come Out and Play"

Mayfield is a small, upper middle class community located in northeastern Baltimore. Governed for the most part by the local homeowner’s association, it features many affordable single family homes, as well as some waterfront properties located on Lake Montebello. Most of the homes were built in the late Victorian Era and 1sts half of the 20th century and feature larger than average lots and well grown trees, as well as manicured lawns and well maintained garages. Many of these are located behind classic white picket fences or more expensive stone enclosures. There also some pretty affordable rental properties in the area, usually in the form of duplexes owned by small time real estate investors.
Mayfield is one of several Baltimore neighborhoods that grew up with the city, and provided homes for families who wanted to live further away from downtown than had otherwise been possible. In many ways, these communities owe their existence to the ever improving modes of transportation that began with trolleys and grew to fruition with the automobile.
The school children in the area typically attend either the public elementary school or St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School. They also enjoy playing in either of the two large parks that border the community, and many families attend one of the five local churches.
