Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lauraville is a neighborhood located in northeast Baltimore, Maryland. The neighborhood is bounded on the east by Harford Road, on the north by Echodale Avenue, on the south by Argonne Drive and Herring Run Park, and on the west side by Mount Pleasant Park and Morgan State University, with East Coldspring Lane passing through the center of Lauraville. Lauraville is named for the daughter of John Henry Keene, who was a local property owner and businessman active after the American Civil War. The area was developed by several subdivisions during the period between 1910 and 1930 as an upper middle class neighborhood, with many houses built on double lots. Sales in 1910 indicated houses were priced at $4,000 at a time when the typical house in Baltimore sold for $1,200. Soon after the Civil War, Lauraville became an official village, with its own post office, and as a result its present name. Local residents who had lobbied for a local mail service were confronted when they discovered the Post Office's requirement for a village name as a mail destination.show more
