Since the founding of Baltimore, 1729, this hill has been a popular point for viewing the city's growth. Here 4,000 people feasted 1780, to celebrate the ratification by Maryland of the Federal Constitution and in honor of the new government gave the place its name. An observatory, built here 1795, signalled city merchants of the approach of their vessels, a service which lasted a century. Shipyards have long been located near the hill and it has been mined for clay and sand during the Civil War, Union troops fortified the site and it was made a public park 1880.
