Most residents don’t know it but one of Owings Mill’s main thoroughfares Lakeside Boulevard, was originally designed to become a lake in a bid for a setup similar to that of Columbia Md. An Army Corps of Engineers study later showed that the lake imposed a negative environmental impact so the plans were scrapped but Lakeside Boulevard remained.
Through the 18th & 19th centuries mining was a large industry in Northern Baltimore County and the current Owings Mills area, leaving a lasting memory in but is little known today. Ore, flint (Flint Hill Drive), gold (Gold Hill Rd), mica & isinglass (Isinglass Rd) were extracted in and around Soldiers Delight Park. Wagons were used to transport minerals from the park during that period. The folks who built and maintained those wagons were called Wainwrights leaving us with today’s Wainwright Circle.
