About this product
- DescriptionNortheast Baltimore has undergone a transformation from a rural area into a 'city suburb', an experience shared by many similar U.S. metropolitan areas. Now reflecting changes through 2007, Eric L. Holcomb's updated edition traces this prototypical process from the region's origins as a hunting ground of the Susquehancks, through its earliest settlement by Europeans in the eighteenth century and its idealization as a picturesque landscape during the nineteenth century, to its rise as a suburb in the twentieth century. Holcomb's obvious passion for the area, combined with his thorough research in geographic indicators such as land ownership patterns, provide a broad empirical foundation for this richly illustrated history.
- Author BiographyEric L. Holcomb is a city planner specializing in historic preservation with the Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation of the City of Baltimore. Kathleen G. Kotarba is Executive Director of the Baltimore City Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation.
