OHS July Open House

July 3 |1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

On Sunday, July 3, the Odenton Heritage Society will commemorate the beginning of train service on the Amtrak-MARC Penn Line with an addition to the Society’s railroad display.

In July 1872 — 150 years ago — steam-powered trains began running between Baltimore and Washington through Odenton. Modernized over the years, this line became a vital part of local and intercity transportation. Train service shaped Odenton’s growth through employment, troop movements, commuting opportunities, and a busy junction with a railroad to Annapolis and Fort George G. Meade.

The Society’s museum, which presents 150 years of community history, is located at 1367 Odenton Road. Hours for our Open House on July 3 are 1PM to 4PM, and admission and tours are free.
