Spotlights of Perry Hall and White Marsh
Perry Hall was originally named for a 1,000 acre estate near the Great Gunpowder River, which was in turn named for the owner's family estate in Birmingham, England. Many of the first settlers in this area were, however, German immigrants. After the Civil War, the estate was divided and a village formed, originally called Germantown. The area was primarily dairies and nurseries until the 20th century, when they were replaced with housing developments and shopping centers.
The White Marsh area was largely undeveloped until after the 1960s, when development potential was enhanced by the construction of Interstate 95. The original plans for the community included a mall at the center and a residential area to the north between Silver Spring Road and what would become White Marsh Boulevard. East of the town center, near I-95 was to be offices and facilities for research. The rezoning was completed in 1970 and 1971 and in 1979; the area was officially designated as a town center.
