Walters Bath No. 2 is a historic bath house located in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. It is a small brick building of 40 by 70.5 feet (12.2 by 21.5 m) laid in Flemish bond with black headers and Maryland limestone trimming. It was constructed in a very simplified form of Renaissance Revival architecture popularized at the turn of the 20th century. The bath house was built for the City of Baltimore by Henry Walters (18481931), who contributed four bath houses to the city. It was designed by architect George Archer and constructed in 1901. The public bath system was abolished at the end of 1959.[2]

Walters Bath No. 2 was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
