Some Interesting Crownsville Tidbits
Crownsville, Maryland is located in Anne Arundel County. Crownsville had a population of 1,757 people, according to the census that was taken in the year 2010. This population represents a 5.20% increase in the population of Crownsville since the year 2000.
Four rather large planned communities have been developed named Arden of the Eden, Herald Harbor, Sherwood, and Epping Forrest since the 1920's. Before then, the area around Crownsville was primarily farmland. Although everything would change during the next 20 years, up until then the area around Crownsville was known primarily for its mining operations.
A local mining business made the area around Crownsville somewhat famous following the Civil War. The sand that was being mined, which was soft as flour and white as snow, was being mined from the hills around Crownsville by a tunneling and/or a stripping process. The sugary white sand found around Crownsville was the finest glass sand in the nation.
On Horn Point in Annapolis, the Annapolis Glass Works opened in 1885. Sand was mined from the pits of the shorelines by companies including the Liberty Sand and Gravel Company at Stevens Creek as well as the Brenan Sand Company at Forked Creek. Approximately 20 local men provided the labor for the mines. The sand was transported out of the caves by the wheel barrow and then dumped into cars that ultimately delivered it to the bins for cleaning. The clay was filtered out of the sand by these bins and the powdery like sand was loaded into the waiting barges. Then, these barges delivered the sand downriver to the Chesapeake where it was provided to the glass works companies. In 1938, the operations ceased at Forked Creek and nearly all sand operations were closed by 1976.
The mining operations in Crownsville and the surrounding area were abandoned between the years 1910 and 1920. Although it isn't really known how Crownsville received its name, in 1911, the region was surveyed and it is believed that the name is the result of the British roots associated with Anne Arundel County.
Beach Shores, Inc. purchased the surrounding land, developed roads, surveyed lots, and began a campaign of advertisements for a new beach community known as Sunrise Beach. A few year round residents and a community of summer cottages were envisioned at the time. Many of the earliest residents in the community built summer cottages, of which the majority were converted to full time occupancy some time later. However, there are few accurate predictors of such things to come.
About 30 families lived in the five sections of Sunrise beach by 1955. A flashlight was required to see the way in order to go from one house to the next and all of the streets were topped with gravel topped. The residents realized that in order to make the community a really desirable place to live, several improvements were going to be required. The Sunrise Beach Civic Association was established by some of the original settlers. They were then incorporated as a nonprofit organization under state law. Nearly all of the families who were living in the community were charter members of the Association.
