Inscription
Early romantic suburb designed in 1889 by Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr., father of landscape architecture in America. On 204 acres of James Howard McHenry's "Sudbrook" estate. Olmsted designed a naturalistic landscape with curvilinear roads intersecting at triangular islands. In an early application of comprehensive land-use regulation, lots were sold subject to 16 restrictions suggested by Olmsted. Not surviving are 2 original cottages, the Western Maryland Railway Station, a hotel, a livery stable, and a 9-hole golf course added in 1898.
