Chatham Gardens

Chatham Gardens—Your Neighborhood

Founded in 1772, the town features the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Station Museum built in 1830. The downtown historic district which is a very popular destination among antiques shoppers, features restaurants, eclectic boutique shops, coffee shops, a tea room, and many historic sites.

In July 2008, Ellicott City/Columbia was ranked the 8th Best Place to live in the United States by CNN/Money and Monay magazine.

Like Rome, Ellicott City is claimed to be built on seven hills. These hills lie south-east of the Historic District, which is on the banks of the Patapsco River. Continuing the Rome analogy, the small tributary of the Patapsco that forms the narrow valley followed by Main Street is named the Tiber River.
