You can live an average life or select an above-average location to live out an exceptional life. Home buyers wanting something special from their new home in the Baltimore area could be drawn to Odenton, Maryland.
Among the many benefits of living in Odenton you will find:
Odenton has come a long way since its early days as a farming settlement.
When the railroad was driven through town in the 1870s, its transformation from a sleepy farming area began in earnest. It was the installation of Fort Meade less than 20 miles away that spurred modern growth, a trend which continues today. This is one of the fastest growing cities in Maryland. When Fort Meade training facility was built, this led to the displacement of many locals who chose Odenton as their new home.
There are fewer students per teacher and more money spent per student in Odenton than in the United States generally. Three of several colleges within 15 miles of this city include the United States Naval Academy (Annapolis), Anne Arundel Community College (Arnold) , and the University of Maryland-Baltimore County.
Live in the city or on the outskirts, selecting the neighborhood which best caters to the needs of family. Attractive Piney Orchard, a planned community about twenty years old, accommodates elementary and pre-schools, recreation centers, and a nature preserve. If your children are of high-school age, both Gambrills and Odenton is home to Arundel High School and possesses a relatively rural feel.
