This is one of the oldest communities in the area, dating back to the 1600s and the original Lords Baltimore—the grand patriarchs of the Calvert family. The land was purchased from the Calverts in 1714 and subsequently known for a lengthy period as “Coals-Ville”. In 1855, President Franklin Pierce purchased a large farm estate here. The oldest surviving home from the colonial era is a palatial mansion built in 1790. For more information about Colesville, MD homes for sale, call us today!
