Welcome to the Mount Vernon-Belvedere Association's website and to one of Baltimore's most historic and grandest neighborhoods!

 

A National Register Historic District, Mount Vernon encompasses the best of what city living has to offer. This solidly fashionable and lively neighborhood not only serves as Baltimore's cultural center, but is also home to world renowned mid-19th century architecture that provides a gracious urban living experience.

 

While Mount Vernon possesses some of Baltimore's most recognizable landmarks, it is also a charming and diverse neighborhood in which to reside, work as well as visit. Leisurely walk the streets of our neighborhood, stroll in the parks, discover the art collections of the Walter's Museum, dine at some of Baltimore's swankiest restaurants, and enjoy an evening at the symphony, opera or the theater.

 

The Mount Vernon community is dedicated to the preservation and restoration of our neighborhood's historic charm for all who live in, work in, or visit this special community.

 

So whether you live in the neighborhood, are visiting, or are considering a move, please check out our website and discover all the wonderful things this neighborhood has to offer!

Brass Elephant applies for liquor license.

             Recently purchased by local entrepreneurs Steve and Linda Rivelis, an application has been filed with the Liquor Board for a new Class B restaurant license along with requests for both Live Entertainment and Off Premise Catering. MVBA Liquor Committee chairman, Steve Johnson, has been in discussion with the Rivelis’ regarding live entertainment, seeking appropriate restrictions for the restaurant.  The Rivelis’ will be making a presentation to the general membership at the upcoming May general membership meeting at the Belvedere.  The hearing at the Liquor Board is scheduled for May 28th.

 

Gay Pride Festival Returns

The festival returns to Charles and Eager Streets on July 25th this year due to the popularity of the event location by its participants.  However, the last time the festival was held on Eager Street, numerous complaints surfaced regarding excessive drinking as well as under-aged drinking.  With the change in City regulations requiring community approval for large events, MVBA created an ad-hoc committee to review the plans for the festival.  The committee met with representatives from the GLCCB on May 13 for several hours to review the generally favorable plans.

Please join us at the general meeting to learn of GLCCB’s plans to manage the festival responsibly.
