You forgot a world class hospital, Johns Hopkins. St. Francis hospital not far from the Railroad Museum is also an excellent hospital.
At one time, a cruise ship destination, but as the ships have grown in size, only a few of the remaining smaller ships, can enter/exit the harbor under the different bridges. We've done a Mexico tour from Baltimore, and one to Canada, Nova Scotia.

It was years ago, before snow roof collapse. Did not inspire a return visit, which is my point. But l am well aware of positive and negative changing neighborhood situations. They had a flood there, too, which may have impacted the station? Hope not.
The flood you are referring to was in Ellicott City, Md., 13 miles by train from the B&O Museum in Baltimore. The Ellicott City railroad station, which was for many years part of the B&O Museum still stands, however, is no longer part of the B&O Museum. I believe it was taken over by the local county government and still operates as a museum.
Ellicott City, has done an engineering study related to excessive water run-off and existing structures that have been consistently damaged by flooding. There is no easy fix, though Howard County, continues to assess the problem. Often, at this point, old mill/railroad towns and related infrastructure are abandoned/razed in extreme flood zones. A sad note, as the frequency of the flooding, has ramped-up, recent history. ??Climate change?? Urban/suburban development, up stream, and all the related asphalt/concrete, contribute to the area problems. Some of the historic buildings severely impede the existing water flow, which includes the train station and visitor parking lot.
