Geography

Timonium is located at 39°26′26″N 76°37′34″W / 39.44056°N 76.62611°W / 39.44056; -76.62611 (39.4441, -76.6076)[2]. According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 5.4 square miles (13.9 km2), all of it land.[3]

The town is north of Baltimore City along York Road (Maryland Route 45). It is bordered on the north by Cockeysville, on the south by Lutherville, on the east by Loch Raven Reservoir, and on the west by Interstate 83. Ridgely Road forms the boundary between Timonium and Lutherville, while Padonia Road separates Timonium from Cockeysville.

Timonium is located in the Piedmont region of the United States, and lies in the transition zone between the Humid subtropical climate zone to the south and the humid continental climate to the north, with hot and humid summers leading into winters that are cold but not extreme by American standards. The average annual snowfall is 25 inches (64 cm) and average annual rainfall is 42 inches (107 cm).

The name Timonium is believed to be related to the palace built by Marc Antony in Alexandria, which in turn was named after the misanthropic figure of Timon of Athens. In local Maryland legend, the land was a plantation that a grieving widow renamed as "Timonium." [4]
