Glyndon History

Glyndon, Maryland, located northwest of the City of Baltimore, still maintains much of the charm it had as a Victorian summer village over 100 years ago. It might be said that the arrival of the Western Maryland Railroad in 1860 promoted the early location and growth of the town of Glyndon. The area itself was beautiful with green expanses and tall trees; an elevation above sea level of almost 700 feet provided delightful summers and mild winters. Glyndon has been a closely-knit community throughout the years. Some families can boast that four and five generations have resided in Glyndon. Yet newcomers are welcomed and readily accepted into the community. It is hoped that the traditions of this friendly, attractive little town are continued by future generations.
