Tour Fell's Point on Your Own 24/7 by Using BNHA's Fell's Point Tour App
History runs throughout the cobblestone streets of Fell's Point. Founded in 1726 by William Fell, a shipbuilder from England, Fell's Point served as the city's deep-water port for over a century. The area's residents were eyewitnesses to the bombardment of Fort McHenry during the War of 1812. Shipbuilders crafted impressive ships, including the young U.S. Navy's USS Constellation and the USS Enterprise. An enslaved Frederick Douglass periodically resided in Fell's Point until 1838 when he fled bondage.
