Maryland White Lead Works is a historic lead paint factory complex located at Baltimore, Maryland, United States. It is a "U"-shaped industrial complex constructed about 1867. It consists of nine interconnected brick and wood-frame buildings, which vary in height from one to four stories, surrounding a yard. The complex includes the powerhouse, two production sheds, a manufactory loft with an office wing, and a service building. The Maryland White Lead Company occupied the site from 1867 to 1896, Baltimore's first and most substantial manufacturer of lead paints.[2]

Maryland White Lead Works was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.[1]
