A Brief History of Dundalk and the Patapsco Neck Area
By 1916 Bethlehem Steel Company had built a shipyard on Patapsco Neck and had purchased 1,000 acres of farmland near the McShane foundry to develop housing for its workers. The Dundalk Company was formed to plan a town similar to one in the Roland Park area of Baltimore City, where businesses were excluded except in specific locations and land was left open for future development of schools, playing fields and parks. The community's streets were laid out in a pedestrian-friendly open grid. By 1917 Dundalk proper had 62 distinctly designed "Dutch hipped" houses with steeply pitched slate roofs and stucco exteriors. A post office and two stores were erected in what was to become the landmark Tudor-style shopping center and a firehouse and police station were later added.
