St. Elizabeth of Hungary is a historic Roman Catholic church complex located within the Archdiocese of Baltimore in the Baltimore-Linwood neighborhood of Baltimore, Maryland, United States.


The complex developed over the period 1895-1926, and consists of four buildings: a two-story, gable-fronted brick structure erected in 1895 as the original church, parish hall, and rectory; a large stone Romanesque church building constructed in 1912; a three-story convent built in 1922; and a large three-story parochial school which was added to the site in 1926. The complex occupies a city block directly opposite Patterson Park. In 1931, the St. Elizabeth School had the largest student enrollment, 1,500 students, in the archdiocese.[2] The church was founded to serve the German immigrant community in Baltimore.[3]

St. Elizabeth of Hungary was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.[1]
