"A real jewel"

Mount Washington, a small, residential neighborhood in Baltimore, is popular for its affordable housing and high end local shops and restaurants. Residents also find it convenient to most parts of Baltimore via Interstate 83, the Central Light Rail and three different bus lines.
While there is both a public elementary and high school, most of the students who live in Mount Washington attended either private or parochial schools, or one Baltimore’s popular magnet schools. Many of the neighborhood girls go on to highly placed Bryn Mawr. Lacrosse is by far the most popular sport in the area. Most school children play on either a school or neighborhood team at some point in their lives. Some even go on to belong to the historic Mount Washington Lacrosse Club, which was once the home of nation Lacrosse Hall of Famer Doug Turnbull.
As a community, Mount Washington have produced more than its fair share of famous Americans. For instance, astrophysicist Charles Bennett grew up here, as well as the heart surgeon Duke Cameeron. Katie Hoff, an Olympic Swimmer, also got her start in the community’s pool.
Overall, Mount Washington is a real jewel in Baltimore, and would make a great place to raise children or even to retire.
