"What a Nice Place to Live"

One of the first planned communities in America, Roland Park was a suburban neighborhood from its inception during the turn of the previous century. Once can still see the remnants of it upper income original owners when you look at the elegant architecture and tree lined streets.
Not just a good place to live, Roland Park is also a great place to learn. Its local public elementary and middle school has won statewide recognition for its academic excellence. There are also numerous private schools in the community, including the Friends School of Baltimore and the Cathedral School, as well as private academies for girls (Bryn Mawr) and boys (the Boy’s Latin School). Residents can continue their higher education at St. Mary’s Seminary and University.
Once they graduate, or if they want to earn some extra cash during high school, students can often find work at the Roland Park Shopping Center, listed in the Guinness World Records as the first shopping center ever created. They can also find work at one of several other malls in the neighborhood.
Finally, the neighborhood is that proud home of the Baltimore Country Club, one of the city’s long established centers of society and culture.
