Route descriptionEdit

 
View east from the west end of MD 130 at MD 140 in Garrison

MD 130 begins at an intersection with MD 140 (Reisterstown Road) in Garrison. The state highway heads east as a two-lane road and passes along the edge of the Green Spring Valley Hunt Club and the Green Spring Valley Golf Course, at the edge of which the highway passes through a right-angle curve. MD 130 enters a more rural area and intersects MD 129 (Park Heights Avenue). The state highway passes through the Green Spring Valley Historic District around its intersection with Stevenson Road, which leads south through the hamlet of Stevenson. MD 130 passes through another sharp curve, crosses the North Branch of Jones Falls, passes the main campus of Stevenson University (formerly Villa Julie College), and passes through a pair of right-angle curves just east of the Gramercy Mansion and west of its junction with Greenspring Avenue. The state highway crosses Dipping Pond Run and passes to the south of St. Paul's School before reaching its eastern terminus with MD 25 (Falls Road) in Brooklandville.[1][2]

HistoryEdit

All of Greenspring Road was paved by 1910 except for a gap at Stevenson Road.[3] That gap in MD 130 was filled in 1934.[4][5] There has been very little change to MD 130 since then.
