Welcome to the 1864 Baltimore City Directory Project . . . .
an online version of the 1864 Baltimore City Directory originally published by John W. Woods. Here you will find data associated with 49,193 individuals and businesses that were present in the city during this time. To begin your search, simply select a letter from the menu above.
This project was made possible only through the effort of several dozen hard working and dedicated volunteer transcribers from across the country (and one from Europe).
To learn more about this distributed processing project (i.e. what and why), as well the caveats and limitations associated with it, please visit the miscellaneous information page.
