"Squared Away"

Wyndhurst is a square shaped middle class community of more than 300 homes, four schools, two churches and several stores and restaurants. It is popular among its residents for its extensive green spaces and nice, affordable housing. Recent years have seen an influx of buyers interested in the community because of its suburban feel within easy traveling distance of the many amenities offered by downtown Baltimore.
While most of the streets were laid out and named around the turn of the last century, the typical Wyndhurst home dates back to the first decades of the 1900s. For instance, the housing boom of the 20s saw series of simple two story cottages spring up around the area, while what is now the Roland Park Public School was built in 1910. The Catholic Cathedral Mary Our Queen and the Friends School were built later.
Another piece of history that Wyndhurst has successfully modernized is the Maryland and Pennsylvania Railroad. The area where its tracks once ran has been converted to a well maintained path popular among bikers and joggers. Of course, by the time the weather is too warm for jogging, the Roland Park pool is open and people can more comfortably exercise there.
