Where Baltimore - - Where Now -

Many sites be­low are part of the Bal­ti­more Na­tional Her­itage Area with ties to the city’s his­tory, in­clud­ing the War of 1812 and the sig­nif­i­cant Bat­tle of Bal­ti­more. FED­ERAL HILL PARK This el­e­vated spot served as a look­out point dur­ing the Civil War and the War of 1812. To­day, the park of­fers In­ner Har­bor views and on­site me­mo­ri­als to those con­flicts.
