Located nine miles north of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, Towson is a city that attracts residents with a variety of lifestyles – professionals, physicians, students and many others. More than 41,000 people already live within this community, and homebuyers looking to relocate to the Baltimore area have realized that the fuss about Towson is well deserved.
As the seat of Baltimore County, many government offices and services are found in Towson. Two major hospitals – Greater Baltimore Medical Center and St. Joseph Medical Center – utilize experts in a variety of specialties who are dedicated to using the latest procedures and state-of-the-art equipment to provide residents with outstanding healthcare services.
The children of Towson attend Baltimore County Public Schools where they receive a premier education from dedicated teachers. Upon graduation, students can choose from several colleges in the area. Towson University is a public institution with more than 18,000 students enrolled. It is the second largest university in the state, and is well known for producing the most teachers of any college in Maryland. Goucher College is a small, private liberal arts college that offers undergraduate and graduate programs for approximately 2,500 students annually.
For those who enjoy learning about the area’s history, Towson has Hampton Mansion. This nationally recognized historic site was the largest private home in America when it was completed in 1790. With its Georgian-style home, spectacular gardens, manicured grounds and original stone slave quarters, Hampton Mansion is preserved as a vast 18th century plantation estate to provide visitors with a glimpse into Baltimore’s rich past. The Towsontown Spring Festival, which began as an art show, celebrates Baltimore with great entertainment and scrumptious food. More than 250,000 residents and visitors attend this annual two-day event.
For a different kind of diversion, residents can spend the day at Towson Town Center. The large indoor shopping mall is anchored by Nordstrom and Macy’s and offers a multitude of upscale retails and specialty shops. Golfers with access to the Country Club of Maryland enjoy an 18-hole course designed by Herbert Strong. For hikers and cyclists, Robert E. Lee Park, which is owned by Baltimore City, surrounds Lake Roland and maintains nice trails suitable for every skill level. Loch Raven Reservoir encourages lots of family fun. Not only does this lake provide drinking water for most of Baltimore County, the man-made reservoir serves as a park and recreational area with hiking, picnicking, fishing and boating.
