History

 

About This Branch

 

The 15,000 square-foot White Marsh Branch opened on January 25, 1988. It is part of the White Marsh Town Center, which includes the White Marsh Mall and Police Station, along with thousands of square feet of retail, industrial and office space.

 

About This Community

 

In 1965, the largely undeveloped northeast corridor was identified by Baltimore County as the preferred site for intensive development. The Harry T. Campbell Sons Corporation owned thousands of acres of land to the east of the planned town center, on both sides of Interstate 95. The land was bought in the 1930s and was being mined of its natural sand and gravel deposits.

 

In the late 1960s, Nottingham Properties began analyzing the feasibility of a new town in White Marsh. From the first the intent was to incorporate a variety of land uses and community services, including residential, retail, business and industrial.

 

From 1972-1981, the planning and development of the White Marsh Mall occurred, with the Rouse Company as owner and developer on land rented from Nottingham. Most stores opened in 1981.
