The proprietary town of "Pikesville" was established here with 10 streets and public square in August, 1818, east of Pikesville Branch and north of "Old Pikeville Rd" on 75 acres of land granted to Thomas Flippin in 1798. Pikesville was narrowly defeated in the election for county seat of Monroe in 1820. The town included a church, school, stores, taverns, grist mill, smithy, tannery, and racetrack. Samuel Johns[t]on with sons James and Nathan[iel] acquired all of the "Pikeville land" (353 acres) from Rev. Dr. John B. Cothran in 1855.
