Pikesville, a prosperous Baltimore County suburb dates back 200 years to 1695 when Fort Garrison was built as one of the three forts to protect frontier settler’s in the colony of Maryland. This stone fort still stands at its originally site.
As one of 13 commercial revitalization districts in Baltimore County, Pikesville's business community is growing steadily. Pikesville businesses have reaped the benefits of a multi-million dollar streetscape project, which included specially designed sidewalks and streetlamps, attractive landscaping and pedestrian furniture. As a result of the community's vitality and progress, more and more merchants are relocating and expanding in Pikesville.
Today, Pikesville is the proud home of a fine mix of families, young professionals and corporate executives – not to mention a diversified base of businesses. Its centralized location, plus its highly acclaimed schools have contributed greatly to the unmatched quality of life enjoyed here.
There is no doubt that Pikesville has grown in the 21st century far beyond the bounds of what was once a very small town. The Pikesville of today runs miles rather than a few short blocks.
