Inscription. Today Camden Yards is synonymous with sports. It is the site of two stadiums that are the home of the National Football League’s Baltimore Ravens and the Major League Baseball’s Baltimore Orioles. North of the stadiums is the Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards. Camden Yards got its name at the height of the railroad era as a complex of extensive rail yards. The tracks of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, America’s first passenger railroad, served the Camden station and a freight warehouse adjacent to it.

Decked out in purple, M&T Bank Stadium (above) is the home of the Ravens, which became Baltimore’s NFL franchise in 1996. The new stadium opened at Camden Yards in 1998.
