The Town a Railroad B
Founded in 1868, Odenton was originally nicknamed ‰ÛÏThe Town a Railroad Built". With the development of the Baltimore Potomac Railroad, the small town became connected to nearby Baltimore and Washington, D.C. As people moved into the area, businesses began forming in order to accommodate the growing need for goods and supplies. In 1917, Fort Meade was established in Odenton, causing the population to rise even more. Once a farming region, Odenton now offers all of the amenities needed for comfortable living.
