Rodgers Forge

Rodgers Forge takes its name from the blacksmith shop of George Rodgers, built in 1800, that was once located on the southwest corner of York Road and Stevenson Lane. In 1934, builder James Keelty, Sr. began work on the Rodgers Forge neighborhood, and constructed over 600 red brick row-home until World War II stopped development. After the war, work resumed under the direction of Keelty’s two son’s James Keelty Jr. and Joseph Keelty. 1,777 homes were completed by 1956. Today, about 7,000 people live in Rodgers Forge.

Just south of Towson University, the neighborhood consists primarily of red brick row-houses, but also includes apartments, condominiums and single-family homes. Despite inconsistencies in the housing market, Rodgers Forge has always had the reputation of retaining their resale value. Rodgers Forge Elementary and Dumbarton Middle school, both located within the community, are Blue Ribbon Schools, and are the center of much activity for children and adults. The Towson Rec Council uses the school fields for lacrosse, baseball and soccer, and the community picnic is held in “the grove” behind the elementary school. On a nice day at any time of the year, the Tot Lot playground, with its swings, slides and play gym is a hive of activity for babies, toddlers and the preschool crowd.

“We moved to the Forge 18 years ago when our daughter was about to start kindergarten. We purchased a 5-bedroom end of group, and I cannot think of a better place to raise our children. When our son started high school we moved to a fixer-upper in Towson, but once both kids were in college, we downsized and moved back to Rodgers Forge to a 4 bedroom middle unit. We love it, and so do the kids!”

Kathy, Rodgers Forge
