Tucked into a wooded area along the Gwynns Falls, Dickeyville was built during the 19th century to house workers at the paper and textile mills powered by the waterway. Today, the 137-home neighborhood retains its historic charm, with old mill buildings, churches and pretty stone and clapboard single-family homes. But Dickeyville offers more than appealing architecture.

“In the sense of community, it’s such an eclectic, wide range of individuals who live there. Older to younger generations, mix of lifestyles and walks of life. It makes it an interesting place to interact with people,” said Dickeyville Association president Christopher Wharton, noting that in recent years, the neighborhood has had a youthful revival, with an influx of young families with children.
