Sykesville Information and Highlights

History

Sykesville Maryland started out as a tract of land owned by the disinherited daughter in law of Napoleon Bonaparte. Elizabeth Bonaparte, the daughter of William Patterson, was forced to leave her husband Jerome in Europe and return to her home in Maryland. She raised her son alone. “Betsy” Bonaparte’s brother inherited said land, and sold a third of it to his business associate James Sykes.

In 1830, James Sykes rebuilt the grist mill that was found on the property and made other significant improvements such as adding a stone hotel with five floors. His intention was to serve the railroad employees in the area. Other businesses were attracted to “Horse Train Stop”, it’s original lackluster name, and set up shop there. They included a church, a couple general stores, mills and the like.

In 1868, massive flooding destroyed both the Sykesville Mill and the business called Elba Furnace, subsequently ending a long water rights dispute. The town rebuilt on the opposite side of the Patapsco River in Carroll County. In 1904, Horse Train Stop was incorporated as Sykesville and nine years later it even began its own little newspaper called the Sykesville Herald.
