Many neighborhoods both in north Baltimore – Roland Park, Mt. Washington, Guilford, Hamden – and in southwest Baltimore – Union Square, Hollins Market, Pigtown, Ridgely’s Delight – are located within historic districts and are eligible for the state historic tax credit program. Learn more about historic tax credits in our comprehensive guide, check if you are in a historic district, then RSVP for a workshop today!
