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 condo came with two deeded parking spaces, which the Millspaughs appreciate on a daily basis.
