A census-designated place (CDP), Lansdowne is located in southern Baltimore County, Maryland. It was established in 1892 when the Whitaker Iron Company mined the area for ores. During this period, the area comprised of mostly farmlands. When the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad was constructed, Lansdowne became known as a B&O town because most of the residents worked for the company. As the town started to develop, churches were seen being established. Some of these early churches include:
In 1977, the Hull Memorial Christian Church, or the Lansdowne Christian Church, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). In the 1950s, new schools were built to accommodate the growing population of families with children. As a result, the Golden Education Triangle – Lansdowne Elementary School, Lansdowne Middle School and Lansdowne Senior High – was created. The Baltimore County Recreation and Parks opened the Southwest Area Park for public recreational usage in the 1980s. The early 2000s saw a redevelopment of a Lansdowne library and an establishment of the Lansdowne Station. Read more to learn about the area of Morrell Park.
The Southwest Area Park is located on the easternmost corner of the area considered within the CDP of Lansdowne. With over 230 acres of land, the park features amenities such as the following:
Furthermore, boat ramps within the Southwest Area Park can provide visitors access to the Chesapeake Bay. The ramps are open from sunrise to sunset all year round.
Also located in the Southwest Area Park is the Southwest Area Park Model Air Flying Field. The flying field belongs to the Southwest Area Park Modelers – a chartered club that's part of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). A recreational and educational organization under the Baltimore Highlands Recreation Council, AMA is dedicated to promoting the advancement of radio controlled (R/C) modeling as a sporting, recreational and educational activity. Members of the organizations can fly radio controlled airplanes, jets and helicopters. Visitors to the flying field have the opportunity to take R/C flight training with their expert R/C fliers.
The Lansdowne Christian Church, or the Hull Memorial Christian Church, was established in 1903. Currently led by Reverend Trent Owings, the church is located on Clyde Ave. in Lansdowne, Maryland. The church was donated by Civil War veteran Charles W. Hull and his wife to honor the Union soldiers of the Civil War. In 1905, three beautiful stained glass windows were given to the church and remain intact today. Historically significant and unique, The Hull Memorial Christian Church is the only church in America dedicated to the Grand Army of the Republic. Besides being added to the NRHP, the church was also added to Maryland's Civil War Trail in 2004.
