During the early 20th Century people escaping the summer heat of Baltimore and
Washington rode trains to Anne Arundel County in sufficient quantity to temporarily
quadruple its population. At that time, Round Bay, along the Severn River, was the
only interracial beach area. Summer camps for children, such as Camp Linstead and
Camp Wawanaissa, were also found along the river.
J. Wilson Brown was part owner of both Round Bay as well as the ASL, hence the
ASL built a station a short distance off the main line, plus a track wye here.
Randell Road on the left is a remnant of that wye.
