Baltimore Heritage partners with resident-led community groups to celebrate and preserve neighborhood history. Thanks to Nathan Dennies, Chair of the Greater Hampden Heritage Alliance for leading this exciting new effort.

The Greater Hampden Alliance was to formed in partnership with Baltimore Heritage in early 2014 to bring attention to the Hampden area’s rich history, from the shops on the Avenue, to the mills and the people who worked in them. Our goal is to preserve the stories and places of the past through community engagement. A love for Hampden and a desire to see it grow in a way that is respectful to its history is what brought us together.

Greater Hampden Heritage Alliance MeetingThe Greater Hampden Alliance includes historians, community leaders and merchants, and those who are passionate about Hampden’s past and future. We meet regularly and our doors are open to anyone with an interest in Hampden history and helping to support this effort. The Greater Hampden Alliance recently completed a new self-guided walking tour pamphlet covering Hampden-Woodberry. This exciting new publication tells the story of the area’s beginnings as a collection of mill villages to the community it is today.

We encourage anyone who has an interest in preserving Hampden’s historic properties to come to our meetings and get involved.
