    Severna Park Real Estate

    Severna Park is part of the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area, as it is nestled between Baltimore, Annapolis, and Washington D.C. Severna Park was originally named “Boone,” and was a stop along the Baltimore & Annapolis Railroad, which was converted to the B&A Rail Trail in 1990. The name Severna Park is rumored to originate from a 1906 contest held by Oscar Hatton while the modern community was first becoming established. The winner would receive a portion of land but controversy arose because the winner was an African-American woman, who was instead rewarded $500. However, extensive research by local historian Nelson Molter found no corroborative evidence for this story, suggesting the naming contest is merely a local myth.

    Severna Park is a medium-sized coastal town as many communities have access to the water.  One of the nice things about Severna Park is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities. Severna Park home prices are not only among the most expensive in Maryland, but Severna Park real estate also consistently ranks among the most expensive in America.
