There's a lot going on in Waverly, in case you haven't noticed. Late last month, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake signed a bill designating the old Waverly Town Hall at Greenmount Avenue and 31st Street as the city's latest historic landmark. The building's second-floor hall had once been a popular meeting place for 19th- and 20th-century politicians, as well as a neighborhood gathering place for Waverly residents. "A lot of us who live in the Waverly area are excited that this has happened," said Joe Stewart, a Waverly activist who is an attorney with the state Department of Assessments and Taxation.

In her memoirs, Baltimore poet Lizette Reese wrote lyrically about her church, St. John's, Huntingdon. She discussed the fashionable ladies who attended services dressed in hoop skirts and carrying frilly parasols, and the gypsy women who lived in the nearby woods and brought their babies to St. John's to be baptized. She described the pews, the chancel rail and the brilliant stained-glass windows with their stern-looking saints.The woods, the gypsy camp and the parasols are long gone, and Huntingdon, a rustic village lying near the Baltimore city line, became the neighborhood of Waverly more than 100 years ago.But Miss Reese, who died in 1935 and lies in the Episcopal church's tidy graveyard, would be pleased to know that much of what she loved about St. John's is still bringing joy to its parishioners.
