History

Cockeysville is the primary city name, but also Cockysvil, Hunt Valley are acceptable city names or spellings. Cockeysville was named after the Cockey family who helped establish the town. Thomas Cockey settled in Limestone Valley in 1725 at Taylor's Hall. Joshua Frederick Cockey built one of the first homes in the area in 1798. His son, Judge Joshua F. Cockey (1800-1891), was a lifelong resident in the village. In the 1830s he built the train station (which would be a stop on the Pennsylvania Railroad) and accompanying commercial buildings. Confederate soldiers pushed into the Baltimore area, intending to cut off the city and Washington from the north. On July 10, 1864, Confederate cavalry under General Bradley T. Johnson entered Cockeysville, destroying telegraph lines and track along the Northern Central Railway. They also burned the first bridge over the Gunpowder Falls, just beyond nearby Ashland. Stone Hall was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. Baltimore County School No. 7 was listed in 2000. After the war, Joshua Cockey III (1837-1920) founded the National Bank of Cockeysvile (1891) and other commercial ventures in the community, as well as developing dwellings along the York Turnpike (now York Road) that made up the village of Cockey'sville. He died in 1891, and his son died in 1903, and he was buried in Cockeyseville. He is survived by his wife and three children. The town is now home to the Cockeysvillians, a community of about 2,000 people.

It produces limestone and marble, including the marble used in the first phase of construction (184854) of the Washington Monument. blocks of local marble were also used in 1836 as rail supports in the track bed for the Padonia Road section of the Baltimore and Susquehanna Railroad (which later became part of the Northern Central Railway) The use of marble instead of wood was an experiment that was soon after abandoned. In 188084, the monument had to be finished using a slightly different-colored stone, most of which came from the Beaver Dam Quarry (now Beaverdam Pond) near the intersection of Beaver Dam Road and McCormick Road. The marble was used to create the whiter portion towards the bottom half of the monument. It was also used for the base of the Washington Statue of Liberty, which was completed in 1884. The stone was made of marble from the Texas quarry, as well as other local quarries. The quarry is now owned by the Texas Department of Transportation, which uses it for road construction.
