A Brief History of Odenton, Maryland

 

The town was named for Oden Bowie (1826 - 1894), the President of the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad and 37th Governor of Maryland (1869 - 1872).   The town was established in 1873 in a very rural area of northwestern Anne Arundel County at the junction of the Annapolis and Elk Ridge Railroad and the new Baltimore and Potomac Railroad line.

The B&P Railroad, which passed through Odenton, began as an effort to connect Baltimore with southern Maryland.  At the same time, the Pennsylvania Railroad wanted to build a line from Baltimore to Washington; however, a federal law prohibited any railroad other than the Baltimore and Ohio from entering the city directly.  The B&P's charter had a provision by which lateral spurs not exceeding 20 miles in length could be built; the Pennsylvania knew of this provision and in 1870 arranged to buy half of the B&P stock - after agreeing to build the B&P into southern Maryland.  The Pennsy built the lines through Bowie (then called Huntington City) to Pope's Creek, thence into Washington via a legal "spur".  On November 1, 1902 the B&P - including the tracks through Odenton - officially became part of the Penny.

From its inception until the early 20th century, Odenton was a sleepy agricultural area in central Maryland, little more than a post office and a train station surrounded by tomato farms.  However, the outbreak of World War I brought an unexpected boon to the area and Odenton, as it is today, was born.

When the War broke out the United States government wanted to establish a training camp for soldiers.  Through some fast talking the management of the Washington, Baltimore and Annapolis Railroad convinced the government to lease almost 20,000 acres of land (controlled by the railroad) along the railroad's right-of-way near Odenton, between the road's crossing with the Pennsylvania Railroad at Odenton and its junction with the Baltimore and Ohio at Annapolis Junction, between Jessup and Savage.  Thus Camp Meade - named for Civil War General George Gordon Meade - was established; Fort George G. Meade remains active today, still occupying the land acquired from the WB&A.
