Vacant long, white two story building.
2817 Frederick Ave. Font Hill and Frederick Avenues
Baltimore Ave., MD 21223
United States
39° 17' 39.5916" N, 76° 38' 7.62" W


According to tomorrow's Philadelphia Inquirer, at Travel p. N1, N7, it says "There's a long, white two-story building at the intersection of Font Hill and Frederick Avenues, now boarded up and forgotten. But in 1895, it recently has been determined, this was where the Ruth family lived with George Sr.'s brother John." The article also says that George Herman (Babe) Ruth was born at 216 Emory St., Baltimore, which is now a museum. (I did my best to estimate the street address here based on looking at Google maps.)
