1. History

Most of the homes in this tiny, secluded community are two-story, wood-frame houses built by Charles Mattfeldt from 1886 to the mid-1890s. Mattfeldt rented the houses to employees of the mills located along the Jones Falls. A portion of the neighborhood was razed by the City of Baltimore after several houses on Mattfeldt Avenue were flooded by Hurricane Agnes in 1972. The empty lots became the neighborhoods two open areas.

As the mills along the Jones Falls closed in the late 20th century, Sabina Mattfeldt transformed from a neighborhood of factory workers into a community of artists and musicians. Its residents have maintained and restored much of the original architecture in their homes, which still have round-top attic windows.

Meadowbrook Aquatic & Fitness Center is located between these homes and Kelly Avenue, opposite the post office on Cottonworth Avenue.
