Welcome to Our Neighborhood

A friendly, affordable, and diverse neighborhood tucked behind the campuses of Loyola and Notre Dame of Maryland University.

Radnor-Winston is a small neighborhood known for its strong sense of community, active improvement association, lovely vintage homes on tree-lined streets, and proximity to shopping and universities in North Baltimore City. We love our front porches, gardens, and sense of being in a small town in the midst of the city. Radnor-Winston is a part of the National Register of Historic Places.


As a friendly, affordable, and diverse neighborhood, the people are what make our community vibrant. We are teachers and social workers, skilled carpenters and hair stylists, birdwatchers and community activists, massage therapists and policeman, writers and artists, nurses and a city councilman. We shovel each other's walks and include our pets in the neighborhood directory. Our families come in all sorts of ages, sizes, configurations, and backgrounds. Many of us have lived in Baltimore for generations while others are newer to the city, hailing from Canada, China, Finland, Germany, Haiti, India, Venezuela, the West Coast, or nearer by, from DC to Dundalk. Once someone finds us, they tend to stick around the neighborhood. In fact, more than a few of us have moved from house to house within Radnor-Winston. Check out Our Community to learn more about why we love our neighborhood.

Our History

Radnor-Winston is one of a number of early suburban communities developed along the York Road street car line in the early decades of the 20th century, built on land where there had previously been a number of large country estates. Since 2003, Radnor-Winston is on the National Register of Historic Places and boasts a good mix of stand-alone houses and duplexes. Of the approximately 250 homes in the neighborhood, most are frame bungalows and four-squares built in the 1920s, and many retain their charming cedar shingles and Arts and Crafts detailing. Since 1958, the RWIA has been an active volunteer organization with a long history of activism on local issues of concern.
