      History of Granite Historic District

      The Granite Historic District is significant for its association with the granite quarrying industry in western Baltimore County in the nineteenth and early twentieth century. Originally known as Waltersville and renamed Granite in recognition of its principal product, the village was the center of this industry, which during its peak in the late 19th century provided building materials for major projects throughout the eastern seaboard. Granite from the Waltersville and Fox Rock quarries was utilized in construction of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad in the 1830s, and later in such projects as the Library of Congress, old Treasury Building, and parts of the inner walls of the Washington Monument in Washington, DC; the old Post Office, Courthouse, Custom House, Polytechnical Institute, and monument to the Sons and Daughters of the American evolution in Baltimore; numerous other projects in Baltimore city and county; and local buildings including the Odd Fellows Hall, two churches, and the public school building which still stand within the district.
      The district comprises a cohesive collection of resources representing the development of the rural quarrying community from the mid-18th century through the late 1930s. Most of the resources are residential in character and date primarily from the peak of the quarry industry in the last quarter of the nineteenth through the early twentieth century; these houses typically conform to the two story cross-gabled type which characterized rural communities throughout the region during the period.
