Medfield ZIP codes: 21211
Medfield is a small, quiet neighborhood located in North Baltimore between Hampden and Roland Park. Medfield residents enjoy below-average crime, close proximity to transit and I-83, and the attractions of neighboring Hampden, all in a quiet, close-knit community. Medfield is less than a mile from Loyola College and less than 2 miles from Johns Hopkins Homewood campus. Medfield is named after the Medfield Academy, a 19th-century prep school believed to have stood near 42nd Street west of Falls Road. The southern half of Medfield was annexed by Baltimore in 1888, and the northern half in 1918. By the early 1960s, most of the neighborhood’s development was complete. Development in Medfield began with the construction of rowhouses in the 1920s in the southern-most blocks of the community. The northern portion was then developed mostly with one- and two-story single-family homes with larger yards. In the 1950’s and 1960’s, the space in between was developed with more modern-era rowhouses.

What I love most about my neighborhood
I love the great sense of community in our neighborhood. We can really trust and depend on our neighbors and have become friends with many of them. Our street in particular has so many families with young children, which is great for me because I am at home with my son. We enjoy block parties, moms'/dads' night out groups, a playgroup, and a group of neighbors who genuinely enjoy each others' company. We sure aren't a neighborhood in name only -- Medfield is a wonderful place to call home.
