The community traces back to 1775 when Baltimore merchant Harry Dorsey Gough purchased a 1,000-acre estate near the Great Gunpowder River. He named the property "Perry Hall," after a family estate in England, and completed construction of what is now called the Perry Hall Mansion. Today, Perry Hall is quintessentially suburban, with good schools, many churches, and one of the largest recreational programs in Baltimore County.
As of the 2000 U.S. Census, there were 28,705 people in Perry Hall, or 11,328 households. About one-third of all households had children under the age of 18. Much of Perry Hall's growth is occurring in the northeastern quadrant of the community, in a development zone called Honeygo. Perry Hall is proud of its heritage and confident of its future.
Perry Hall is known as "Baltimore County's Crossroads." The community's growth coincided with the development of the Baltimore and Jerusalem Turnpike. In the 20th century, I-95 and the Baltimore Beltway helped link Perry Hall to communities up and down the Eastern Seaboard. Today, one of Perry Hall's greatest assets is its accessibility.
