About Waverly

Formerly a small village on the outskirts of Baltimore, Waverly is now a charming and historic neighborhood with easy access to Downtown, Towson, and the Capital Beltway. This part of Baltimore came into being in the 1840s when it was known as Huntingdon and was built around a shoemaker's business, blacksmith shop, and three small houses made out of stone. In 1866, more land was acquired and the town subsequently built a firehouse, town hall, and post office. The post office changed the town's name to Waverly and it's been part of Baltimore's history ever since.
