Located in the heart of historic Hamilton, on Harford Road just south of Northern Parkway, the Hamilton Branch serves the Northeast Baltimore communities, including Hamilton, Gardenville, and Belair-Edison.

The original Hamilton branch building opened at Hamilton and Richard Avenues in December 1920. After a World War II housing boom, a larger building was constructed and opened in January 1959. Read more Pratt location history.
