Boundary Expansion

The heritage area is looking to expand its boundaries, and your input is important!

The boundary of the Baltimore National Heritage Area dates to 2002, when the state-certified Baltimore City Heritage Area was established. In 2007, the boundary was expanded to include Mount Auburn Cemetery, Cylburn Arboretum, and the Middle  Branch of the Patapsco River.

In 2013, the heritage area completed a comprehensive management plan that called for exploring additional expansion. Areas for future inclusion need to have a collection of historic, cultural, and natural resources that hold a potential for heritage tourism.

BNHA is currently conducting research into including the following historic neighborhoods and areas into a revised boundary:

  • Green Mount Cemetery
  • Oliver
  • Clifton Park
  • Lake Montebello
  • Herring Run Park
  • Morgan State University
  • Morgan Park

BNHA is also considering including the entirety of the Highlandtown Arts and Entertainment (portions of Highlandtown are currently within the heritage area).
