The entire Rodgers Forge neighborhood was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009 because of its unique status as a well-preserved example of early to mid-20th Century community design and architecture.
The neighborhood is known for its attractive tree-lined streets, active community association, strong neighborhood schools and citizen participation, tot lot and community open space, and its walkability.
In 2013, Rodgers Forge was recognized by Baltimore Magazine as one of the “Best Kept Secrets” in Baltimore. Indeed, Rodgers Forge has increasingly become one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the Baltimore Region for those who want the best of both worlds that “urban-suburban” living has to offer.
The Forge is not part of a formal HOA, but there are covenants that run with deeds that require homeowners to have exterior changes to their homes approved by the Rodgers Forge Community Association.
There is strong community spirit and pride in Rodgers Forge, and many ways for residents to participate in neighborhood life -- from volunteering on neighborhood committees to the Annual Summer Picnic, plus other family-oriented events like Outdoor Movie Nights, the Easter Egg Hunt, and Santa Claus visits.
