  •  Interesting Features
    The main building of the foundry had quite an interior. In addition to the collapsing metal beams of the roof keeping you alert and on your toes, gaping holes in the floor opened up to the Jones Falls underneath. The most ineresting feature was a row of small columns that extended in front of the foundry as well as a giant crane hook inside capable of lifting a rail car.

     History
    In the 1850's, the Poole & Hunt Foundry came to Baltimore to a section of town that was already known for flour milling. The foundry is supposed to have made the columns for the Capitol in Washington DC. At the time they were the backbone of the Woodberry community, providing jobs in the foundry, stables, pattern shop, and melting house. In 1995, a fire destroyed most of what was left of the Foundry.

    Developers got their hands on this place and turned them into upscale living and shopping, which is the fate of many historical buildings in MD.
