Why Laurel Could be Your Next Hometown

The city of Laurel, named after the Laurel tree, was developed in the 19th century as a milling and factory town. It's one of the oldest industrial areas in the Washington, DC area. The Quakers started coming to Laurel in the 1600s. The Patuxent River was a major resource to the city. The Savage area originates from Savage Mill, which produced canvas materials in the 1800s.

Since the city lies right between three counties: Howard, Prince George's and Anne Arundel, parts of the city are situated in different counties.

Laurel is most known for being the home of the Laurel Park & Pimlico Race Track, which hosts horse track racing events and competitions. The famed Preakness Stakes has occurred here at this race track since 1873. The National Wildlife Research Center of Patuxent Research Refuge also offers tours, education programs and information. Festivities include Main Street Festival, Montpelier Spring Festival, and Riverfest.
