1. Dundalk, Maryland Founder 1894 Marker
Inscription. Approximately 200 yards northwest of this spot an iron foundry, owned by William McShane, was built in 1894. When asked to give a name to the railroad depot serving his new foundry, he chose “Dundalk” in honor of the birthplace of his father, Henry McShane, born in Dundalk, Ireland. The two seaport communities of Dundalk, on in Ireland and one in Maryland, have many other similarities.
