Most parts of Baltimore County, Maryland, are suburban. But because this county is so close to the nation’s capital in Washington, D.C., it is a very busy area. The county has a good deal of history attached to it; it was first founded in 1659, over 100 years before the U.S. became an independent nation. There are many properties in this area that are listed as Historic Places on the National Register. Even before European settlement here, there were many Native Americans in this region, mainly the Susquehannocks.
Baltimore County has many tourist attractions. The Hampton National Historic Site is listed as a nationally protected area that includes a Georgian mansion that used to house the Ridgely family and their slaves. There are also many parks, universities, and several big employers that keep these communities thriving.
