Cockeysville is a town in Baltimore County that was established by the Cockey family in the 18th and 19th century. Thomas Cockey and his family came to the Limestone Valley in 1725. Joshua Frederick Cockey, one of Thomas’ descendants, established one of the first houses in the area in 1798, and they built the area’s first commercial building, a hotel, in 1810. Joshua’s son became the town’s judge. He also built the town’s train station in the 1830’s.
Cockeysville was a hotspot for confederate infiltration during the Civil War. Confederates invaded the town and all the surrounding Baltimore County towns in an attempt to separate Baltimore County and Washington DC from their northern allies.
Stone Hall, an estate resting on 248 acres of land was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
