Ellicott City has been one of Maryland’s favorite small-town destinations since at least the 1830s. A group of Pennsylvania Quakers settled the area in the 1790s, but the community absolutely boomed when the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad reached it in 1830. Ellicott City isn’t a stop on that railroad any longer, but its historic district is an enduring testament to this mill town’s legacy, and it just so happens to be home to one of the best hidden gem museums you could hope to come across. The B&O Railroad Museum is a fascinating adventure back in time for any visitor hoping to wander down Main Street – and best of all, admission is completely free!
After experiencing what this gorgeous museum has to offer, why not check out these other activities along Main Street in Old Ellicott City? There’s definitely no shortage of fun things to do. Tell us what some of your favorite stops are!
