Tucked Away in North Baltimore

We are tucked behind two small universities (Loyola and Notre Dame), nestled among larger neighborhoods (Guilford, Homeland, Mid-Govans, Roland Park), and near a business corridor (York Road). We're in the Roland Park school district and close to a diverse array of places of worship. We're also a short distance from the Belvedere Square market and Senator Theater, the restaurants at the Evergreen, the Waverly farmer's market, the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus, and the Cold Spring stop on the light rail. One of Baltimore's bike trails goes right through our community.

The red star in the maps below indicates the midpoint of our neighborhood on York Road. Radnor-Winston is located in the ADC Baltimore City map book on page 35 in grid B-2 & 3. Our neighborhood is between Coldspring Lane and Homeland Avenue, and between N. Charles Street and York Road.

The aerial photos are from December 1998, the first looking west on Radnor with Loyola in the distance, the other looking northeast over the 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.
