About McElderry Park

History of Our Neighborhood

McElderry Park takes its name from the McElderry family, who were wealthy merchants in Baltimore in the early 19th century. Irish immigrant Thomas McElderry (1758 – 1810) arrived in Baltimore in 1793 and quickly established himself—building a wharf that bore his name, improving Market Square, and helping found the Baltimore Water Company.


E Monument Street, N Linwood Avenue, E Fayette Street, parts of N Milton Avenue, Orleans Street, and N Patterson Park Avenue make up the community boundaries.
