As Baltimore continues working to building the Red Line light rail route, we are telling the stories of historic landmarks and neighborhoods along Red Line’s West Baltimore corridor. From its earliest days as a local road and then part of the nation’s first federal highway, the U.S. Route 40 corridor is rich in history. In this series of digital and print publications, Landmarks on the Red Line highlights the history and architecture from Poppleton to Edmondson Village.
Check out each Red Line stop to find local architecture, discover the history of West Baltimore neighborhoods, and learn more about how to save historic places in the corridor.
With support from the Baltimore City Department of Transportation and the Maryland State Highway Administration, we are excited to document the rich heritage of neighborhoods along the Red Line corridor and to help West Baltimore communities turn the light rail project into transit-oriented community development in the years ahead.
