History

As Howard County’s oldest settlement, Elkridge holds a rich history, still marked with its historic churches and sites.  Historically, its location on the Pataspco River was a key element in its growth as it prospered as an industrial town, also marked with employment from the B&O Railroad.  Running along the Patapsco River, the Patapsco Valley State Park provides nature trails, athletic fields and playgrounds.
