Milton-Montford is a neighborhood in the heart of East Baltimore, Maryland. Milton-Montford lies north of Patterson Park and south of Amtrak's Northeast Corridor. The neighborhood is bounded by the neighborhoods of McElderry Park to the south, Madison-Eastend to the east, Biddle Street to the north, and Middle East to the west. The swath of land between Johns Hopkins Hospital and Frank C Bocek Park, which includes Milton-Montford, is often referred to as the "Down the Hill" neighborhood by local residents.[1]

History[edit]

The neighborhood lies within the East Monument Historic District. The district is historically significant due to the large Czech-American immigrant community that once lived in the area. Milton-Montford has since transitioned to a majority African-American neighborhood.[2]

Milton-Montford is a neighborhood in transition due to gentrification driven by Johns Hopkins Hospital. Sales of houses have increased since 2016 and prices have soared. Cost of real estate in Milton-Montford neighborhood has increased partly because of the nearby Station East redevelopment.[3]
