By strictest definition, that title goes to Wheeling, West Virginia.

Of course, we're probably talking about cultural Southernness here. That title probably goes to Louisville, KY or Salisbury, MD. (Most of Maryland doesn't really have a distinctive culture, whether Northern, Southern, or other - same thing with NoVA.)

Baltimore is the Northernmost southern city. It's still the "Dirty Souf."

It could very well go to Baltimore. This is a southern tradition.

Looks like the hats old ladies wear at church. The old ladies that sit in the front, blocking everyone's view because of those hats. Seriously, those hats aren't really a MD thing; moreso a Preakness and old church lady thing.

I just find it to be an interesting southern twist to the area. Just like Old Ebbitt Grill, mint juleps and the popularity of seersucker suits during the summer in DC.

Also, keep in mind that Southern MD, and the Eastern Shore have a different history than the Baltimore area. Baltimore was a very "white" city before the Great Migration. Before that, it was very Irish and to a lesser extent, Italian. During slavery, there were far more Free Blacks than enslaved.

I wasn't picking up on much "southern" when i was in Baltimore back in the 1990s. Seemed a bit like Philadelphia to me.

...I think there was a Polish community out in that Bellaire area on the east side.

Also, northern states, Like NY, only ended slavers 36 years before everyone else. Before then 25% of NYC's population were slaves.
