Our Neighborhood

An intimate community nestled just ten minutes north of Frederick, MD. 

Glade Towne began as a horse farm! Challedon (1936–1958) was an American Hall of Fame Champion Thoroughbred racehorse. Bred in Maryland by William L. Brann and Robert S. Castle, he raced under the colors of their Branncastle Farm. Most of the streets in Glade Towne are named after horses raised at the farm. The horse barn is now a pre-school behind Glade Valley Church of the Brethren. The big white manor house on Glade Blvd was where the owners lived. Old slave quarters are the out buildings behind the house and are now apartments. You can still see the carriage row trees from Rt 194 that lead to the big iron gates in front of the house. The farm was then sold to the Maryland Baptist College in 1969 but they found the location too far out in the country and decided not to build. The Glade Towne Community Association developer Earnest Ausherman bought it in 1971. The community is complete and there now resides 476 units (120 condos, 147 townhouses and 209 single family homes).
