This is Stone Hall, one of Maryland’s preeminent country estates. An impeccable, Federal style, stone manor house that sits upon 78+/- acres of unfettered natural beauty in the heart of Worthington Valley. Originally part of the 4,200 acre tract patented by William Nicholson of Kent County in 1719 and formerly owned by Thomas Gist, a colonel in the Baltimore Militia during the Revolutionary War.
The PSAT scores are out. So what’s next? Should your student prep for the ACT instead? Or maybe stick with the SAT? Should your sophomore start this summer or wait until fall?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. And while you are making that list (and checking it twice), make sure to stop over at the Village of Cross Keys. Minutes from downtown, Cross Keys offers some of Baltimore’s best shopping with local boutiques, as well as wonderful national retailers, tasty dining options and a Radisson hotel (a perfect spot for out-of-town family). Putting the charm in Charm City, the Village of Cross Keys has a little something for everyone. You’ll be checking off that list in no time and enjoying a hot toddy at one of the cafes!

Baltimore Fishbowl has been in business for nearly eight years. We take pride in that fact, especially because in that time other popular media products such as The Urbanite, The City Paper, The Baltimore Messenger, The Baltimore Beat, and others have folded. We understand why.
Our readers understand why, too, and over the years, many have asked how to support Baltimore Fishbowl. Now we have a way readers can support our work.
We officially launched our membership program this month and ask for your support by becoming a member.
Membership benefits include:
Giveaways: Exclusive offers from local businesses that we’ll pass along to members via private email.
Member opinion: Each month, we’ll poll the membership about an important issue and publish the results on Baltimore Fishbowl.
Other surprises: This part’s members only, so sign-up to become a member and we’ll send you the details.
