Comments:

Baltimore was a small town built on the western banks of the Wabash River in Mound Township, Warren County, in the U.S. state of Indiana.

Remains:

Baltimore was laid out in November 1829 by William Willmeth and Samuel Hill. It flourished for several years, and the population reached 70. In 1830, Samuel Hill had a stock of merchandise worth $2500 at his establishment, which was the largest stock in the county at the time. A post office was established in 1833, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1865. Another store was opened by Samuel Wetzel in 1839.
