DAVIDSONVILLE, MD 21035 Davidsonville is a semi-rural community composed mostly of farms and suburban-like developments. Davidsonville has relatively little commercial development and no high-density housing. The geographic center of Davidsonville is the intersection of Maryland routes 424 (Davidsonville Rd) and 214 (Central Avenue). It is located near main roads that take residents to Washington DC and Baltimore. Europeans and their descendants settled and developed farms and plantations in and around what came to be known as Davidsonville in the 18th and 19th centuries. Several good examples of this development in the area remain today. One is the Anne Arundel Free School, built between 1724 and 1746 with John Wilmot as schoolmaster. It is open for tours. Another good example is the Roedown Plantation, which today is the home of the Marlborough Hunt Races. The annual steeplechase event is attended by 5,000 spectators. The emergence of Davidsonville as a crossroads community began in the mid-19th century. In 1839, Thomas Davidson, from whose family Davidsonville received its name, built a home at what is now the corner of Davidsonville Rd and Central Avenue that still stands today. Davidsonville is among the best preserved examples of a crossroads community remaining in the county. The village has maintained substantial integrity despite increasingly intensive development pressure in the surrounding area.
