William, John Linthicum

Twin Oaks - the name evokes a rural character long since lost to this part of Anne Arundel County. Built in 1857 by William Linthicum, this antebellum manor home presided over a 130-acre farm.

Twin oaks was the summer retreat of John Charles linthicum, U.S. Representative from 1911-1932. From here, he often lobbied dignitaries and influential statesmen. In 1918 Linthicum introduced a bill designating "The Star-Spangled Banner" as the national anthem. President Hoover signed the bill in 1931.
