Welcome to the Guilford web site, the site for and about this distinctive community located in north Baltimore.
Guilford was planned by the Olmsted firm and developed by the Roland Park Company in the early 1900’s. It has stunningly beautiful architecture, community parks, streets lined with mature trees, the world-famous Sherwood Gardens, and a prime location that is a short commute to downtown Baltimore. Guilford is designated a National Register Historic District.
There are about 800 single-family homes in Guilford that range from cottages to stately mansions. In Guilford, families find a quality of life and unique environment rarely found. It is a close-knit community where family and social activities reinforce lasting friendships.
Guilford’s location is minutes from the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus, Loyola College, the College of Notre Dame, an array of excellent neighborhood restaurants, the Baltimore Museum of Art and the City’s finest public and private schools.
The Guilford Association, Guilford’s neighborhood association, represents the community, increasing the power of individual voices. Its volunteer board and committee members serve as liaison with City departments, address concerns of the community, coordinate communication, raise funds to support Sherwood Gardens and other neighborhood priorities and most important, oversee and enforce the Deed and Agreement. The covenants of the Deed and Agreement assure that the integrity of the community is maintained and that the original design standards are followed.
Please explore this site as a resident or a visitor. Use it as a reference for community events and news, source for community contacts and an explanation of covenant obligations as well as a resource for a closer look at our extraordinary neighborhood.
