Lutherville-Timonium Real Estate Information

Lutherville-Timonium is an unincorporated community in Baltimore County, Maryland, and the annual location for the Maryland State Fair each labor day. According to the census taken in 2000, Timonium has just over 15,000 residents. Inside of Timonium’s borders lies the historic district of Lutherville. To the north of Timonium is the town of Cockeysville, and to the south is the town of Towson, Baltimore’s county seat. The town’s eastern border is considered to be Dulaney Valley Road, and some believe the western border to be bounded by I-83. Timonium is located north of Baltimore City by way of the I-83 and York Road.

Lutherville-Timonium is found in the Piedmont region of Maryland and just between two different climate zones. To the north is the humid continental climate zone and to the south is the humid subtropical climate zone. Timonium, therefore, experiences hot and humid summers like most of the east coast, and cold, but not extreme, winters.

Some key places in Lutherville and Timonium include Route 45, commonly known as York Road. A majority of the town’s commercial properties can be found on or near this road. Route 131, also known as Seminary Avenue, is a road that cuts across the county, going through most of historic Lutherville. A majority of the real state along this road is residential. Ridgely Road is considered to be the division between Lutherville to the south and Timonium to the north. This road ends at the Lutherville Light Rail Stop, where one can find large shopping centers as well as the local stop for the Maryland Transit Administration’s rail lines. Timonium Road cuts from the west to the east of most of Timonium. Along this road is a small section of commercial property, but more importantly the main entrance to parking for the Maryland State Fair.

Transportation throughout Lutherville and Timonium is made easy by the Maryland Transit Administration’s light rail system, which has three stops in the area. Additionally, bus lines are available and running several routes through the town. The modern light rail has since replaced the old Northern Central Railway. President Abraham Lincoln traveled through Lutherville on this rail system on his way to deliver the Gettysburg Address. He later passed through Lutherville, this time on his funeral train en route to Springfield, Illinois for his final resting place, shortly after dieing in 1865. Lutherville-Timonium is home to a long history as well as being the site of the 2008 East Coast Rock Climbing Divisional Championships.
