Named For Isaac Burton
The area of Burtonsville, originally called Burton’s, takes its name from Isaac Burton, who in 1825 bought out his sibling’s shares of his father’s land and thus becoming the major landowner of the area. The community slowly grew around the intersection of Old Columbia Pike and the road to Sandy Spring. Around the 1850’s, Isaac Burton became the first official postmaster of the newly established post office in the area, which also operated out of his store on the intersection. Today, the core of the community still centers on the intersection of Route 198 and Route 29.

Traveling east on Route 198 will take you to downtown Laurel and into Maryland City. Route 29 is the only other major route in the area and is the community’s main north-south route. Traveling north for roughly 30 minutes and this route will take you to downtown Columbia and will eventually end in Ellicott City. If traveling south on Route 29, you can go as far Washington, D.C.
