Midtown Edmondson Historic District, National Register of Historic Places, Registration Form (2015 January – Draft)
The proposed Midtown Edmondson Historic District (including nearly all of the Midtown-Edmondson neighborhood and a portion of the adjoining Harlem Park neighborhood) is a mixed-use area of rowhouses, warehouses and commercial buildings largely constructed between the 1880s and the 1910s. The district is characteristic of the transition between Baltimore’s early period of suburban growth through the 1860s and a later period from the 1910s through the 1940s.
Reflecting this history of suburban development, the district is significant under National Register Criterion A for its association with the growth of West Baltimore and under National Register Criterion C as an example of a late 19th-century and early 20th-century suburb with a diverse range of rowhouse designs. The district is further significant under National Register Criterion A for its association with the post-WWII racial transition of West Baltimore.
This final draft of the Midtown Edmondson Historic District nomination prepared by Eli Pousson for Baltimore Heritage was submitted to the Maryland Historical Trust in January 2015 for review.
