History & History Related Items

The area was first settled during the 1600ís as part of a large land grand to George Calvert, the first Lord of Baltimore. Later in 1716, Alexander Beall gained possession of a 920 acre piece of land he called Friendship Enlarged. Upon his death, the estate was divided into smaller parcels. One of these was called Hills and Dales. The land went through several different ownerships through the years. Many of the old, stately homes in the area were built by some of the previous landowners of the large farms and estates, among them White Oak Farm and Avenel. In 1933, Merritt Lockwood purchased one of these parcels, the 375 acre Hutchinson Tract. This is the area that would later become Hillandale. Homes began to spring up around the area and more needs became apparent, such as schools for the children. A volunteer fire department was organized in 1941. During the war years of the 1940ís, the town remained small, but developed a good community spirit with activities and support.
