Lansdowne is in southern Baltimore County, just south of Baltimore city with a population of approximately 8,500.
In the late 1800s, the Whitaker Iron Company mined for ore in Lansdowne. They left behind abandoned pits from the mining that filled up by underground springs creating small ponds and lakes. Lansdowne was mostly farmland until the railroad came. Lansdowne then became known as a B&O town. Most people worked for the rail company, commuting by train into Baltimore City..
In the 1950s housing developments launched in the area and new schools were built for these neighborhoods. The Lansdowne Elementary School, Lansdowne Middle School and Lansdowne Senior High were known as the "Golden Education Triangle."
In the early 1960s the B&O closed the railroad crossing and a boulevard was constructed bridging over the railroad tracks subsequently dividing the community into two separate parts. Some old railroad cars were erected as a museum and shopping area alongside Hammonds Ferry Road.
