1200 Riverside Avenue history is interesting and unique in Federal Hill in Downtown Baltimore.
1200 Riverside used to house a bar, a deed showing the name as “Riverside Tavern.”
The very open floorplan & side entrance, plus the large kitchen and many windows help you to envision what may have been there.
Neighbors have shared stories of their parents/uncles/friends sitting at “their” seats at the bar, how each had their own stools. They called it “Sis & Chris’s.” I haven’t been able to find any details on a bar of that name, but it could have been a part of the Riverside Tavern, or before the records we have been able to discover.
A Baltimore Sun blog from 2008 indicates that Riverside Tavern was located at one point at 801 E. Fort Ave. 1200 Riverside was sold as a personal residence as of 1997.
The new owner of 1200 Riverside can enjoy the beautiful, 18-foot wide home, with the skylights, overlooks, curved stairwell, and over 2,769 sq ft, while knowing their home is steeped in deep Baltimore history.
Here is a slideshow of photos of the neat home!
