The oldest settlement in Howard County, Elkridge was founded on the banks of the Patapsco River and was a major hub for local tobacco farmers to bring their crops to market. Later, the Elkridge Furnace Works helped transition the area into iron manufacturing, and the historic complex still stands in town. The city also has a number of historic churches as well. Modern life in Elkridge is relaxed and casual, with a small-town atmosphere that belies its convenience and modernity.
