Smaller home, bigger life: Fed Hill is a playground for empty nesters who have outgrown the ‘burbs

When Faith and Ted Millspaugh moved from The Orchards to Federal Hill in 2016, they did more than simply change homes. They also updated their lifestyle.

The Millspaughs closed on their new home — a two-story, 2,300-square-foot condo at the top of Federal Hill Park — in the summer of 2016. They were sold on the quiet luxury of the building, the light and the wrap-around terrace with its views of the stadiums on one side and the harbor on the other. “And the parking!” adds Faith. The condo came with two deeded parking spaces, which the Millspaughs appreciate on a daily basis.

Driving down Russell Street on the way out of Baltimore, it’s hard to miss the giant orange warehouse sign: WHAT IS AND WHAT CAN BE. This is the unofficial mission statement for the non-profit Second Chance. Its official mission: Retrain, Reclaim and Renew. That is, to retrain people, many just out of prison, for full employment; to reclaim building materials and architectural salvage for use in renovation and new construction, and to renew usable materials to help eliminate waste in the environment.
