Last week, I posted the first part of a series of pictures of Baltimore, MD. Here is the second part, in the Mount Vernon neighborhood.

It is a beautiful district of Baltimore, full of cultural places to visit and admire. Here is what the Baltimore’s Mount Vernon Cultural District website has to say about it:

With a backdrop of stunning 19th century architecture and inviting parks, Baltimore’s Mount Vernon is a cultural urban village that boasts museums, music, theater, international dining cuisine, boutiques, festivals, and a thriving nightlife. The neighborhood’s historic centerpiece, built in 1815, is the Washington Monument. The nation’s first monument to George Washington soars 176 feet above four picturesque parks. Mount Vernon is a special place, rich in history and vibrant in the present, a neighborhood that beckons residents and visitors to take their time and enrich their lives.

There were two main reasons for me to visit this beautiful area: the Washington Monument and the Peabody Library. But I discovered there were much more to see.
