The History of the MA & PA Trail
The MA & PA Railroad stretched between Baltimore at North Avenue & Howard Streets, on to Towson, through Long Green Valley into Harford County. It ended at Market Street in York, Pennsylvania. Even by the standards of the day, it passed through some of the most wooded, curvaceous and beautiful scenery on the east coast.The MA & PA Railroad was an important part of life in Harford County, especially for the towns between Baltimore and York. The early morning run from Harford County to Baltimore City carried so much milk that locals called it "The Milky Way."For the owners of the County's many canneries, quarries and mines, the railroad was part of their livelihood.If you know where to look, there are many left-over sights of the MA & PA Railroad in Harford County, including along the MA & PA Trail in Bel Air and Forest Hill.
