Plans were made to link linked I-83 and I-95 by building an elevated highway along the north shore of the Baltimore Harbor. This project would have entailed extensive demolition within Fell’s Point, and the highway would have cut off the remainder of the neighborhood from the waterfront. Over the years, The Preservation Society has worked to maintain the 18th and 19th century character of the historic structures within Fell’s Point.
The Society operates without cost to the city of Baltimore and it currently maintains many of the buildings as well as running historic tours of Fell’s Point. The Fell’s Point Fun Festival has grown dramatically over the years and continues to have a large impact in maintaining the historic integrity of Fell’s Point for businesses, residents and visitors.
