Eastwood’s history started when it evolved from countryside to a residential area with its development during the 1940s and 50s. Like most of eastern Baltimore County, Eastwood was the answer needed to housing for the ever-growing population of industrial workers at Bethlehem, Eastern Stainless and Durrett-Sheppard steel companies, Western Electric, Martin Marietta, GM and other plants.
That industrial development provided homeowners with a less expensive path to home ownership of sturdy brick homes, a condition reflected by the sturdiness of the community comprised of those homes.
Today, Eastwood residents still take pride in their homes, their relationships and the effort put into their neighborhood. The Eastwood Center remains the social and civic center of the community.
