Odenton Historic District
Throughout Odenton, there are many structures and landmarks with historical significance. Many of these locations are found in an area now designated by Anne Arundel County as an official Historic District. This district includes the main streets of Odenton
Road and Becknel Avenue and the surrounding neighborhood. The Odenton Town Center Master Plan allows this area to maintain its unique residential character, and any properties identified as contributing to the historic character of the neighborhood will be preserved. In the historic district, new developments must complement the traditional architecture, yards, and street character of the area.
The Odenton Heritage Society encourages residents and visitors to pass through this section of town and view the true historic center of Odenton.
