Names: 
Baltimore (Locust Point), Maryland
Locust Point (Baltimore), Maryland
History: 

Most Volga German immigrants who disembarked from their trans-Atlantic voyage in Baltimore remained there only a short while before moving to other areas of North America. However, several families remained there and settled in the Locust Point Neighborhood southeast of downtown Baltimore.  Most lived along Richardson Street.  The Haspert and Sch(a)echtel families from Köhler are believed to be the first to settle there in 1906.

Most of the Volga German settlers living in Locust Point were employed as dock workers in the nearby Baltimore shipyards.

The faith life of these families revolved around Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Church, located at the corner of East Fort and Towson Streets.
