Parts of Lutherville actually date as far back as 1852, when two Lutheran ministers founded it as a planned community. They created a Lutheran church and seminary, and then decided to name the town they created after Martin Luther. Today, nearly all of the original structures built during this time are still standing and have a place on the National Register of Historic Places. This includes the original St. Paul's Lutheran Church from 1856, St. John's Methodist Church that was built in 1869, and Oak Grove, which was the home of Lutherville founder John Morris built in 1852.
