Overview

Baltimore's first large municipal park, Druid Hill, is commonly known for its shady lawns, rolling hills, picturesque water features, and majestic forest. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the history of Druid Hill Park began over two centuries ago when the Susquehannock Indians ceded land that included the park's area in its holdings to Lord Baltimore (1652). It is believed that Druid Hill would have been a desirable place for American Indians because of its access to the Jones Falls Stream as well as the multiple springs at the site. Formerly the estate of George Buchanan, one of the seven commissioners responsible for the establishment of Baltimore City, "Auchentorlie" included 579 of the 745 acres that comprise Druid Hill Park today.
