Before the birth of our nation, brothers William and Thomas Towson forged a hamlet north of Baltimore on the trade route to York, Pennsylvania, at its junction with a Native American trail known as Joppa Road. In 1854, Towsontown was established as the county seat by popular vote, and the cornerstone of the Baltimore County Courthouse was laid.
