The Friday blog series, "Welcome to Our Town", introduces you to different towns/areas in Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Virginia. When contemplating purchasing a new home, it's always good to do your research on the area. We hope this blog helps you to choose your forever home in a fun and exciting town that you love...and when you find it, call or email us, to discuss your financing options.
Welcome to Monkton,MD! Just 20 minutes away from the grit of Baltimore’s city life is the horse-country haven of Monkton. With old stately homes dating back to the 1800s, plus plenty of horse farms and countryside, it offers a geographically convenient pastoral escape. Visit the picturesque Ladew Topiary Gardens for its landscaping and occasional live music, hike and bike (or even horseback ride!) along 20 miles of the NCR Trail, rent an inner tube and float down the Gunpowder Falls, or take in a romantic dinner by the fire at The Milton Inn. Be sure to also stop by Gunpowder Bison & Trading Co. for its butcher shop of fresh bison meat and jerky, as well as a grocery store of other local, small-batch products.
