Well known for fox hunting, the prestigious community of Hunt Valley has welcomed an impressive number of new businesses, industrial parks, and corporate centers, including the Hunt Valley Business Complex. Hunt Valley may be best known as the address of the manufacturer McCormick, a successful spice business that first settled into the area in the 1970s. The housing in this area remains in great demand, offering attractive architectural styles and a wide range of prices to suit any lifestyle. Views of shade trees, lush gardens, and sweeping lawns are common. Residents can shop close to home at Hunt Valley Mall. This section of Baltimore County is rich in history, parks, museums, and recreational sites. Oregon Ridge Park encourages a wide range of outdoor adventures from fishing to hang-gliding or hot air ballooning, and serves as the summer home of the Baltimore Symphony. This region is “horse country,” with nearly 150 horse farms covering the picturesque rolling countryside.
