Lutherville-Timonium is a medium-sized town located in the state of Maryland. Nine constituent neighborhoods, Lutherville-Timonium is the 26th largest community in Maryland.
The village was founded in 1852 by two Lutheran clergymen, Dr. John Gottlieb Morris and Dr. Benjamin Kurtz, and a Lutheran layman, Charles Augustus Morris. The founders laid out the streets, which were named for Lutheran clergymen, in a grid pattern that radiated from the lot set aside for the Lutheran Church. Dr. Morris planned the village as a residential setting for the Lutherville Female Seminary, a women’s college, which he founded in 1853. Timonium gets its name from the Timonium Mansion owned by one Mrs. Archibald Buchanan.
Lutherville began as a mid-19th century summer resort and suburb of Baltimore City. Single-family dwellings on large lots characterize the community, and tree-lined streets, laid out in a grid pattern, still lend it a quiet, rural atmosphere. Most of the structures predate World War I, although ranch-type and “colonial” houses have appeared in the past few decades.
The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Lutherville Timonium has a high rate of owner-occupied single-family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community.
