From the flyer:

Dundalk was first named in establishing a train depot, but its real growth as a community began in 1916. The Bethlehem Steel Co. purchased the Maryland Steel Co. plus 1,000 acres and began plans for a community to house employees. The U.S. Shipping Board Emergency Fleet Corp. (EFC) developed the community using the Garden City concept. Control of the project passed to an the Dundalk Company, whose leaders controlled development of Roland Park. Rowhouses, semi-detached and single homes stand in harmony with the park areas. The plan included a shop-ping center, community buildings and space for churches and other community needs. Parks and curving tree-lined streets signify Olmsted Brothers design.

Guided walking tour by Dundalk resident, Donna Young, retired biology teacher and local historian.

Tours: $15 each. $18 day of tour. Limited to 20.
