History

 

About This Branch

 

Another view of the Perry Hall reading garden in September 2013The original and smaller Perry Hall Branch opened at 9440 Belair Road in 1963 and was replaced by the current 25,000 square foot green building on Honeygo Boulevard on March 9, 2009. 

 

The new Perry Hall Branch features a reading garden which was dedicated on December 1, 2010. The garden includes benches, sculptures and a picturesque view of the small nearby pond. The walkway is made of recycled materials  from the renovation of the North Point Branch plaza in 2010. 

 

The $30,000 garden project was funded by the Foundation for the Baltimore County Public Library, the Perry Hall Improvement Association and a significant donation from Rosedale Federal Savings & Loan in memory of former president and chairman of the board George Barrett.


 

Angel Park
 

Angel Park Video ThumbnailWe are looking forward to welcoming and partnering with our new neighbor.  Angel Park is a planned all-inclusive playground that will be located on land adjacent to the Perry Hall Branch.  It will be "a fun-filled place where children can play together with their peers, family, friends and neighbors without experiencing physical or social barriers to inclusion."

 

 

About This Community

 

Captain John Smith encountered the Susquehannocks in 1608 when his expedition cleared the way for intense industrialization along the Gunpowder River and northeastern Baltimore County including numerous mills, furnaces, and forges by the Eighteenth Century.  A small settlement emerged near present-day Cowenton and Joppa Roads, home to woodcutter families who lived in log cabins and sod houses.

 

Perry Hall mansion was constructed in the northern region of Perry Hall by the wealthy planter Harry Dorsey Gough on a 1,000 acre estate called "the Adventure" north of present-day Belair Road which he purchased in 1774. Gough renamed the estate "Perry Hall," after his family's home in Great Britain, and completed construction of the Perry Hall Mansion which still stands.
