Rodgers Forge

Welcome to Rodgers Forge

Quaint suburban living and big-city access meet in the gorgeous Rodgers Forge neighborhood. Home to nearly 1,800 households, this close-knit community is the quintessential Baltimore County suburb. Known for its welcoming atmosphere and friendly residents, Rodgers Forge is a highly sought-after Towson neighborhood.

Founded in the 1930s, Rodgers Forge was built on what used to be Dumbarton Farm, owned by John Hopkins. Most of the homes in the community were built in the 1920s - 1950s. The neighborhood started as a “streetcar suburb” along the number eight line connecting Towson to Baltimore City. Rodgers Forge has outgrown its original purpose and emerged as a vibrant, suburban community.
