MOUNT AIRY, MARYLAND

Mount Airy

The town of Mount Airy and the surrounding countryside is referred to as the “Four-County Area”.  Mount Airy includes portions of Frederick, Carroll, Montgomery, and Howard Counties.

HISTORY

Mount Airy began development in 1830 as more settlers began constructing homes since the town was known for its train station on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.  The railroad ran from Baltimore to Frederick and cities to the east and west of Mount Airy.  The official name of “Mount Airy” came about from an Irish B&O worker who would complain about his ears freezing when working on a cold, windy workday.  Mount Airy’s economy continued to grow over the years from milling, canning and sewing industries.
