Bowie, Maryland City Info

The Town of Bowie owes its existence to the railway. In 1853, Col. William D. Bowie succeeded in obtaining a charter from the Maryland legislature to construct a rail line into Southern Maryland. In 1869 the Baltimore & Potomac Railroad Company  began the construction of a railroad from Baltimore to Southern Maryland. By 1872, it was completed together with a spur to Washington DC. The remainder of the railroad through Southern Maryland and Pope's Creek was completed in 1873.

Earlier, the area was dotted with small farms and large tobacco plantations in an economy based on agriculture and slavery. However, in 1870 a land speculator and developer, sold building lots around the railroad junction and named the settlement Huntington City." This has been declared as the Founding of Huntington City in 1870, Bowie has grown from a small railroad stop to the largest municipality in Prince George's County, and the fourth most populous city and third largest city by area in the State of Maryland. The town was first called Huntington City, though its train station was named in honor of local resident, who was President of the Baltimore & Potomac Railroad at the time, and later Governor Oden Bowie.

The town was subsequently rechartered as Bowie in 1880. In the early days the land was subdivided by developers into more than 500 residential building lots, to create a large town site at a junction of the Baltimore and Potomac's main line to southern Maryland, and the branch line to Washington, DC. By 1902, the Baltimore & Potomac was purchased by the powerful Pennsylvania Railroad.  

A second railroad entered the community when the Washington, Baltimore and Annapolis Railroad electric trolley line commenced service in 1908. the large interurban cars brought rapid transit to the area, with trains running hourly. Bowie area stations included High Bridge and Hillmeade, and the Race Track. This convergence of the two rail systems induced the Southern Maryland Agricultural Society to build the Bowie Race Track in 1914. This track enabled the Belair Stud to be noted as one of Maryland's premier areas for Thoroughbreds.
