Violetville is a neighborhood in Southwest Baltimore that has retained the charm and friendliness first exhibited when it was a small, country village. The neighborhood gets its name for the beautiful flowers that appear each springtime. Most residents in the neighborhood live in 1950's era rowhomes, but single-family, detached homes are also spread throughout the community. Close proximity to I-95 and downtown Baltimore makes Violetville a prime location for people who want quick access for their commute or downtown destination.
