About our association


                                                                   OUR HISTORY


The 1877 Atlas of Baltimore County identifies our community as a part of the 2nd District, in the sub-division of Randallstown.  Old Court Road, a major thoroughfare, had its beginnings, as a white man's road because it led to the Court House of Baltimore County, and it was located at the fifth in series of sites of the county government.  At the time Baltimore County included, in addition to its present area, Harford, Cecil and a part of Kent County.  Old Court Road was given its name because it led to the center of the county government, Joppa.


The historians have no doubt that the Old Court-Joppa Road was an important Indian road or path.  They believe that itg was a part of the regular system of paths or trails from the Potomac to the Susquehanna and from the west to the latter river.  The Iroquois Indians dominated the area.  They wanted the paths to cross few streams and then only at shallow points where passage would be easy.  The Old Court-Joppa route fit the description.


The land for the Stevenswood Sub-division was acquired in 1961 by Crestmount, Inc.  Stevenswood was built in two sections.  Section one was formerly known as Old Court Village.  Section one included Liberty Road, Courtleigh Drive, Stevenswood Road, Stevenswood Court and Janvale Road.  The land owners and architects were Joseph Schnaper, Aaron Schnaper, and Lenore Schnaper.  The Schnapers built stable, quality homes with many amenities.  In fact, they lived in the neighborhood, on Carlson Lane until 1993.  The community rests on 38 acres of land.  Today, there are over 250 single-family homes.  Stevenswood is a multi-ethnic community, composed of residents who love working together to maintain a high quality of life.  The community has been cited as one of the finest in Baltimore County


                                                                         Stevenswood Improvement Association


The Stevenswood Improvement Association  (SIA) was incorporated on January 29, 1965.  SIA was established to unite residents for mutual benefit and protection, to advance and protect the interest of its members, to promote the general welfare of the community and to cultivate a spirit of helpful cooperation among its members.  SIA became inactive in the early eighties.  On friday, April 27, 1990 a group of over forty residents met at the home of Charles and Ella Campbell and unanimously agreed to reactivate the Stevenswood Improvement Association.  Officers were elected and street representatives were identified.  By-Laws were developed and adopted.  The Articles of Incorporation were revived on March 5, 1992. 


SIA has achieved success by leading the battle to get the hospital incinerator enclosed; conducting community-wide yard sales, holding two successful Multi-Cultural Holiday Celebrations, getting neighborhood identification signs erected, publishing a neighborhood directory, addressing neighborhood complaints, circulating neighborhood newsletters, keeping the community apprised of zoning, traffic, environmental, health, education and other issues, and serving on county-wide committees.  SIA also led the move to close the Body Talk club on Liberty Road and to eliminate Pawn Shops on Liberty Road.


Dues were due in January of each year.  The association met on the second Wednesday in January, April, July, and October, at 7:30 P.M., in a selected community location.


Stevenswood has a Teen Council, open to all teenagers in middle or high school.  The Teen Council met on the fourth Thursday of each month , at 7:00 P.M.
