Brief History

Baltimore was chartered on October 19, 1793. The town was organized on March 12, 1794. Baltimore was created out of the southeastern corner of Cavendish.

Starch making was big here in the 1820's and 1830's, when the population reached 200; since the Civil War there have been fewer than 100 residents. At just over 3,000 acres, it is one of the smallest towns in the state, and one of a handful which has never had either its own Post Office or a recognizable village.[1][2]
