The land within Fulton, Maryland, was first surveyed in 1700. The name Fulton was given to the area in honor of the popular Baltimore Sun editor Charles C. Fulton in 1882. In the mid 1800s, a 185-acre farm, Maple Lawn Farms, was formed. This same farm was nationally recognized in 2004 and was the name basis for the lovely main street community, Maple Lawn, which was developed around that same time.
