UMMC Midtown Campus

The University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus is currently proposing a 100,000 square foot Outpatient Center and expanded patient parking. The building will be located in the space currently occupied by the Midtown Campus “Gatch Building” which was the former Maryland General Hospital Nursing School Dormitory site.
The Seton Hill neighborhood association has been active regarding the plans for this center. Here are their plans: Midtown Outpatient Center Community Presentation May 2016a.

French Fair Planning Committee


Every year, the Seton Hill Association hosts the annual French Fair in our St. Mary’s park. We’re forming a committee to help plan this year’s fair, the 7th Annual Frenh Fair!

Please join us for our first planning meeting: 25 May 2016 at 7:00pm.

For details about the fair itself, check out our page on the 7th Annual French Fair.

Here’s what the City Paper had to say about our fair in their 2014 Best of Baltimore edition:

“We love Mount Vernon, home of City Paper HQ, and like every other year, we are tempted to give it the nod here. But one of the great things about Baltimore is the cheap rent, which allows interesting people to do interesting things without working all the time. Seton Hill is sort of like Mount Vernon West, except instead of Mount Vernon’s four little parks, you have the big, brick-walled St. Mary’s Park, and you know you can’t afford one of the big MV mansions, but you can get one of the small little alley houses in Seton Hill. The neighborhood was once Baltimore’s French Quarter—betcha didn’t know we had one of those— founded by refugees from the Haitian and French revolutions, and has the classic architecture and annual French Festival (Oct. 19 this year, with rounds of Petanque and a toddler tour de France) to prove it.”
