Westfield and Hamilton in Days Past


Westfield is an ethnically and occupationally diverse community of more than 1,200 households.  It's a family-friendly neighborhood with an average household size of 4.5 people (twice the Baltimore City average). Hamilton Elementary/Middle, located in Westfield, is ranked one of the best public schools in the city. Our neighborhood is known for its friendly residents, "walkability," and affordable single-family homes with large yards. Houses (dating mainly from the 1920s onward) are characterized by shady front porches, detailed woodwork, and driveways and large backyards you won't find downtown.  With a population of roughly 3,200 residents in a space of 275 acres, Westfield has an average of 12 residents per acre, making it one of the most spacious and green communities in Baltimore City.  Nonetheless, the close proximity to I-695 and I-95 makes commuting easy. Harford Road offers walkable access to local shops and restaurants, and a light drive to downtown.
