Baltimore City Hall

100 Holliday Street, Baltimore, MD 21202 www.baltimorecity.gov

George Frederick was only 21 years old when he submitted the design for a new City Hall for Baltimore in response to a competition held by the City’s leaders. His design in the Second Empire style beat out several more experienced competitors. Baltimore City Hall was completed in 1875. In the mid-1970s, City Hall underwent a complete renovation in which some spaces were restored to their original grandeur while the rest of the building was modernized to meet contemporary needs. Baltimore City Hall occupies an entire block bounded by Holliday Street on the East, Fayette Street on the South, Guilford Avenue on the West, and Lexington Street on the North. The entrance is on Holliday Street. Anyone needing a handicapped accessible entrance should come to the Guilford Avenue entrance and ring the buzzer. Photo ID required.

Join an hour long guided tour at 11am or 2pm on the 28th!
