Comptroller Peter Franchot issued a proclamation to the Mt. Washington Tavern for its dedication to the community.
Comptroller Peter Franchot recognized the Mt. Washington Tavern’s effort to reopen its doors after a fire destroyed the restaurant in 2011. Franchot awarded the popular bar and restaurant with a proclamation on Monday, not only for its owners tenacity in bringing the tavern back, but also for its support of the Mount Washington community, according Caron Brace, a spokeswoman.

The Mount Washington resident has gone to hundreds of Orioles games.
Lisa Warren didn’t grow up at Camden Yards—they grew up together. The Mount Washington resident was 11 when she went to her first game at the “new” ballpark. But she was already a diehard Orioles fan by then after years of watching them at Memorial Stadium. Follow North Baltimore Patch on Facebook and Twitter. Along with her younger brother, Ben, now in Chicago, sister, Amy and parents, she would go to several games each season. Now Warren has season tickets and goes to about 30 each year. None, however, means more than opening day, which is where she'll be Friday when Baltimore hosts the Twins. Amy Kitchens, a Highlandtown resident and Warren's 29-year-old sister, has accompanied her to the home opener for the last six seasons. “It’s …

Mount Washington Village merchants hope that warmer weather will help them rebound from business lost to construction and the Mt. Washington Tavern fire.
For merchants in Mount Washington Village the past several months have been tough on business. First replacing water mains along Falls Road made getting into the village a challenge.

Fergusson, who has been in business for 44 years, 36 of them in Mount Washington, said that after the tavern fire there have been noticeably fewer people walking around the village. She said the tavern was a draw for people from throughout the area who would often shop at village shops before …

The replacing of water mains is expected to be over by June.
The worst of the road construction along Falls Road near Mount Washington is over. Representatives of several city agencies met Tuesday night with residents and business owners at the Mount Washington School to update them on the project. The Department of Public Works (DPW) has been replacing water mains between Northern Parkway and the city-county line since October. The construction has delayed traffic and made it difficult for customers to get to local businesses. “We’re passed the point of really impacting traffic,” said Jonathan Scott, a DPW project manager. The last phase of construction for the project involves installing six “tie-ins” that connect the water mains. "Tie-ins" have to be installed between Northern Parkway and the …

The Department of Public Works is working to replace water mains near Mount Washington.
For businesses along Falls Road near Mount Washington the construction associated with replacing water mains has become a drag on commerce.

He said lunch represents about 40 percent of his overall business. Schiffbauer said many of his diehard customers are still coming to eat but some of his patrons, like those who would come from Sinai Hospital, are choosing not eat there because of the traffic. “It’s the people that have an hour to …
