My Travels: Town of Laytonsville, MD

Beautiful porch decor - Laytonsville MD

Hi friends,

I hope you're enjoying what's left of this holiday weekend. As this Memorial Day comes to a close, I want to extend a warm salute to the men and women in uniform and their families for their service and all of their sacrifices.

A couple weeks ago as I drove to my daughter's office to set the design plan and work on updating that space, I had to pass thru this cute little town, the town of Laytonsville. It's unbelievable how close it is to our home, a shame we haven't visited this town more frequently.

Every time I passed by, I couldn't keep my eyes on the road! Those gorgeous houses made me
look to one side and then to the other, admiring their beautiful features.

Two weeks ago I was waiting anxiously for their annual Summer parade to go and take some pics, but guess what... It was cancelled due to lots of rain.  Total bummer. 😞

So, last Saturday, along with my partner in crime, my daughter, ;) I went to Laytonsville to drool  some more.

This first house was our main attraction with its spotless lawn and beautiful decor!

Can you see the little clear glass bottles there on the window in the picture below?  So charming!

It was dressed in a Spring-y yellow/pink mode, I wonder if they change the decor for the seasons. Gotta check it out again in a few weeks to see if its dressed for Summer. ;)

All these pictures were taken from no more than 3,4 blocks on the same street.  Yep. Laytonsville is a small town, about 2 square miles and approximately 353 residents.


Some of Laytonsville's most important buildings are the St. Bartholomew's Episcopal church founded in 1812...

The Laytonsville Town Hall

This is the city town hall, it was originally built in 1883 as a family house. However, it was refurbished in 2002 and is now used as the city town hall where the town's council and others meet. This home was a huge investment in the 19th century. you can check the cost of the entire house as well as the lumber, nails, etc. by visiting their page right here. Those are unbelievable prices nowadays. :)


The funeral home, picture below, as well as the fire department, which I didn't photograph, are other important buildings here.

Historical houses with attractive porches and red roofs line the street.





From the street you can peek at the sheds on the backyards.




This house below is going thru a massive renovation.

It looks like they're keeping all those gorgeous architectural details.

 I had no idea if they're planning on updating the wooded shed in the back.

I wouldn't mind to continue seeing the passing of time on those boards.



 Other businesses that caught my eye were these... The Erdle Automotive.

The Atco Tire shop, all ready for a roof replacement.

Those doors are such a gorgeous feature.

And last but definitely not least, the old gas station at the corner of Brink Road and Laytonsville Rd.

I hope you've enjoyed the tour of this charming town!

  2. That does look like a very special town! I practically run off the road and often miss my turns because I'm too busy looking at houses and gardens. You are not alone! :)
