1. The Streetcar Era in Catonsville
Inscription. For over 100 years, streetcars graced the streets of Baltimore and the heavily traveled #8 line to Catonsville was one of the most popular. This line swung north from Frederick Rd. and plunged into the woods for a brief run to its terminus at Edmondson and Dutton Avenues. The #8 line's final run was on November 3, 1963, ending the era of streetcars in Baltimore. In 1996, the Old Catonsville Neighborhood Association and hundreds of volunteers from all parts of Catonsville converted this one third mile path into a walking trail. This trail is dedicated to those who worked on the trail and made it a reality.
