Baltimore, the largest city in Maryland, has a long and rich history, spanning back to its founding in 1729. Once known as the 2nd largest point of entry for immigrants entering the United States, it also was one of the country's major centers of industry, until the decline of major industrialization. Since then, Baltimore has focused on becoming more service oriented, and is home to both John Hopkins University and John Hopkins Hospital. Baltimore is also known for having many famous residents over the years, including Edgar Allen Poe, Billie Holiday, and Babe Ruth.
Coast Guard Yard spans roughly 22 acres, includes numerous athletic and recreational facilities, including basketball courts, a tennis court, softball fields, a racquetball court, and a swimming pool.
