Mt Vernon Neighborhood
The Peabody Institute
Johns Hopkins University
Across the street from our Church. From its beginnings in 1857, it has brought together a community of artists, teachers, and scholars to train other artists and to spread, by their precept and example, an understanding of what the arts can do to uplift the quality of human life.
Across the square from the Church. Baltimore's Club for professionals.
One block south of the Church. The collection presents an overview of world art from pre-dynastic Egypt to 20th-century Europe, and counts among its many treasures Greek sculpture and Roman sarcophagi; medieval ivories and Old Master paintings; Art Nouveau jewelry and 19th-century European and American masterpieces.
Mount Vernon Place encompasses the Washington Monument and the four adjacent park squares, as well as the adjoining streets and sidewalks. Work on the Master Plan was completed in May 2010. The restoration of at least the Washington Monument is expected to be completed in time for its bicentennial in July 2015.
Established in 1938, the Mount Vernon~Belvedere Association (MVBA) takes its neighborhood seriously. We aim to preserve and restore our neighborhood. In addition, the association works hard to disseminate information to our residents and businesses about issues that affect our neighborhood, and to inform our visitors of the many exciting activities that take place right here!
