Glen Burnie was established in 1812 by a district attorney named Elias Glenn. At that time, he called the area Glennsburne. Records indicate that the community was known by several different names, including Glennsbourne Farm and Glen Burnie. The Glenn family continued to live in the region and promote the community’s development.

Much of this development happened in the first half of the 20th century. Schools, churches and homes were established as the population grew. In 1958, Glen Burnie was propelled to the forefront of retail with the construction of the Harundale Mall. Harundale was developed by the Rouse Company and was one of the country’s early enclosed shopping centers. Four years later, the Glen Burnie Mall was built. In February of 1987, the Marley Station Mall opened, cementing Glen Burnie’s identity as a shopping destination.
