The historically rich African American community of Upton is a focus of urban revitalization. Together with the Upton Planning Committee, six neighborhoods have created a family atmosphere while working to keep our community safe and clean.
Shaped like a Christmas tree, Upton has zigzag boundaries which extend clockwise from Dolphin and Pennsylvania along Pennsylvania, Preston, -Druid Hill, Biddle, Argyle, Hoffman, Myrtle, Harlem, Brune, George, Fremont, Bloom, Division, Lafayette, McCulloh, and Dolphin. Notable residents of Upton include Chief Justice Thurgood Marshall, Furman Templeton, Judge Harry Cole and former Baltimore Mayor Kurt. L Schmoke.
