Fells Point - Maps, Driving Directions & Local Area Information

Feature Name: Fells Point
Category: Maryland physical, cultural and historic features
Feature Type: Physical
Class: Cape
Description: Located on the north side of Northwest Harbor in downtown Baltimore, across from Locust Point.
History: Originally established as Long Island Point in 1670. In 1730, this feature was named for English Quaker William Fell who purchased the land surrounding the cape. Fell and his son Edward anticipated the potential for this area and established the community as a separate city in 1763. By 1773 it had been annexed by Baltimore along with nearby Jones Town. Fells Point maintained a battery from 1776 to 1783 as part of its military defense of Baltimore during the Revolution. The post Revolutionary War economy boosted trade and the development of the area. For many years Fells Point served as the main port of Baltimore due to the deep water in Northwest Harbor. By 1800 the community was growing into a world-renowned ship building center, known especially for the Baltimore Clippers, a very agile and fast ship. (US-T121)

Puerto Rico’s Forgotten Island Vieques Needs Help

In the very early morning hours of September 20, 2017, the eyewall of Hurricane Maria passed over the tiny island of Vieques, Puerto Rico as a Category 5 hurricane, before moving westwards to mainland Puerto Rico. Maria ravaged the 60-square mile island with sustained winds of over 150 MPH and storm surges of over 12 feet, destroying homes, local businesses and causing widespread devastation.
