A National Register Historic District, Mount Vernon encompasses the best of what city living has to offer. This lively neighborhood not only serves as the cultural center of Baltimore but as the home to a diverse group of residents and businesses. College students who walk to class and professionals who work here, downtown, or as far away as Washington and New York are just some of the people who take advantage of Mt. Vernon's convenient location. Singles and empty nesters who seek to avoid the monotony of the suburbs, enjoy a wide array of art, entertainment, and services just steps from their front door. Living spaces include single family Victorian row homes, carriage houses, condominiums, apartments in row homes, and several high-rises.
Mount Vernon is home to the Walters Art Museum, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, the Maryland Historical Society, Center Stage, the Theater Project, Spotlighter's Theater, the Peabody Musical Institute, the Enoch Pratt Library and the Lyric Opera House.
