Baltimore Homes in Locust Point

The neighborhood peninsula of Locust Point is one filled with rich history of our nationís past. Many of Locust Pointís streets are named after heroes from the War of 1812. Locust Point is best known for location where Francis Scott Key wrote "The Star Spangled Banner" during the Revolutionary War. Locust Point is home to Fort McHenry, a military base that was used to train thousands of men throughout World War II and the Korean War. Locust Point was once one of the largest areas for immigrants to enter into the United States. Many of these immigrants came from European countries seeking a brighter future. The immigrant station in Locust Point was closed in 1914 as war with Germany loomed.

Locust Point is surrounded by the Patapsco River to the north, south and east. With so much waterfront real estate to offer its residents, it has seen quite the transformation in recent decades. One example of this is the 1920s B&O Railroad Grain Silo which has recently been converted into a 228 unit high rise condo complex. "Silo Point", as it was named, will provide its residents luxurious amenities and amazing views of the harbor and downtown Baltimore.

Locust Point still has two active marine terminals; Helen Delich Bentley Port of Baltimore and the Domino Sugar factory terminal. Locust Point is also home to Phillips Seafood and Under Armour who is located in Tide Point, a historic waterfront rehab project at the end of Hull Street.

Locust Point real estate remains somewhat secluded for city living, with only Fort Avenue and Lawrence Street providing major access to the area. One place for Locust Point residents to spend their leisure time at Latrobe Park, located along Fort Avenue. Latrobe Park offers open greens, soccer/kickball field, benches, basketball courts and a recreation center.
