THE SUNDAY HERALD, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1890.
in on the Ground Floor,
TOWN LOTS ARE NOW SELLING at $25, $50, and $100 in the new and beautiful town, PASADENA, sit
uated right on tho lino of of the Baltimore and Annapolis Short-Lino Railroad, in the prettiest, healthiest, and
most productive part of Maryland, within alout 15 ?iii'iics of Baltimore from Camden Station.
THIS IS THE BEST and cheapest opportunity for profitable Investment ever offered in the State of Maryland.
PASADENA is only a few minutes' walk from the EXCURSION GROUNDS, about 10 minutes' ride from Bathing
Grounds and IKON SPRINGS, while the SULPHUR DEPOSITS and GLASS-SAND BANKS can be reached in
the same time.
GROVELAND HEIGHTS, on Lookout Mountain, are within 15 minutes' ride of Pasadena.
PASADENA itself Is directly on the line of tho Annapolis Short-Line Railroad, thus being accessible, through Round
Bay, both by land and water, (the latter being deep enough in either the Severn or the Magothy River to float
the largest sea-going vessels.)
THE TOWN SITE is a fine one in every particular. The land is high and healthful, the scenery unsurpassed for
grandeur, variety, beauty, and extensiveness of view, while the WATER-FRONT of Round Bay, 10 minutes'
ride from Pasadena, is, without exception, superior to that of any other in the State of Maxyland. Cool
breezes constantly prevail. There is an abundance of water and of tho purest quality. The ground is covered
with shade trees of every variety.
A LARGE RAILROAD DEPOT, freight houses, etc., will soon be in course of constiuction. The banks alongside of
the road are to be graded, leveled, and otherwise Improved and ornamented with sodded grass and shade Jtrees,
so as to improve vastly tho general approach to PASADENA.
THE SOUTHERN LAND COMPANY have just completed their survey. The towu is now laid out. A large number
of houses just completed. In a short time silk farms, with their factories, orchards, and truck gardens, will
spring up on every side. Hundreds of these farms are already Eold. The whole country is being rapidly taken
up by actual settlers.
MANUFACTURING INTERESTS AND INDUSTRIES are now being largely represented by prospective plans for
factories, mills, shops, and other commercial enterprises, among which may bo mentioned a large knitting mill,
employing not less than 250 hands; a silk mill, with 100 operators; a saw mill, two canning establishments, and
IN ADDITION TO THIS, the ARROW STEAMSHIP COMPANY have already purchased a large tract of land at
Round Bay and will begin operations immediately, thus giving employment to thousands.
THE TOWN MUST GROW. The thousands coming into Pasadena will need groceries, clothing, boots and shoes,
furniture, and all the other necessaries and comforts of life. Pasadena must supply them. It has no rival.
Its natural advantages fit it for a large commercial and manufacturing town, while its attractions as a summer
resort are far superior to any other resort in this country North or South.
THE RAILROADS running throuqh, around, and about Pasadena are many. Aside from the Baltimore and Annapolis
Short-Line, there is the Drum Point Road, Elk Ridce Road, the now lino ju6t completed to Ocean City, to bo
connected with Baltimore and Potomac by road passing directly through Pasadena. This will make Pasadena
about equal distance from Washington, Baltimore, and Annapolis, yet bringing Pasadena nearer to tho outside
world than any of these places. Its geographical position makes it impossible for any one road or combination
of roads to form a monopoly of rates tho river always being an outlet for freight and passenger traffic.
THE TOWTN LOTS now on sale are 25 by 100 feet. Avenues GO feet wide intersect each other, while larger lots, In sizes to
suit purchasers, are offered at low prices. Now Is tho tlmo to buy. In a few months their valuo will largely
increase. Even now they arc enhancing in value every day. Next year these lots will bo worth ten times tho
price now asked for them.
RAILROAD INDUCEMENTS to Investors In Pasadena are the mo6t liberal over offered, not only as regards passenger
rates, but also In freight discriminations. All residents are allowed FREE transportation. All freight carried
at half rates.
THE SOUTHERN LAND COMPANY was organized and incorporated April, 188S, and has acquired very valuable real
estate In and around Baltimore, together with important franchises necessary to tho development of this prop
erty. The property owned and controlled by this Company is worth at leaBt $500,000, and includes Pasadena,
Round Bay City, Grovoland Heights, Odenton, Oakland, and Villa Ridgo.
THE MOUNTAIN HOTEL COMPANY will soon erect on tho very crest of Lookout Mountain a hotel at a cost of
$250,000. Tho view from this spot is magnificent beyond description. From this point tho whole land, with its
rivers and crests, bays and creeks, towns and cities, spreads out a magnificent panorama of wondrous beauty
and great expanse.
CABLE CARS will soon run from Pasadena tho entlro length of Grovcland Rldgo up to Lookout Mountain, connecting
at that place with cars for railroad station and boat landing at Round Bay, at which place the Round Bay Com
pany has already made elaborate Improvements. Natural 6hady groves have been transformed into magnificent
excursion grounds, with unequalod facilities for boating, bathing, fishing, and hunting. Pavilions and mu6lc
stands have been erected; restaurants opened, while rollor-coasters, swings, boating and bathing houses, and all
other equipments necessary to a first-class resort are hero to be found at every turn. Mineral Springs, free to
all, gush up from all parts of the place. Walks and drives may bo taken in all directions and for any dlstanco
without being broiled In tho sun.
A COMPANY IS NOW FORMING for the purpose of developing tho natural mineral springs at Round Ba These
springs are celebrated far and near for their medicinal properties, iron being tho principal constituent, whllo
magnesia and lime are present in small quantities. These waters are cool and a mild chalybeate. By system
atically using and drinking them, good results follow. In a few months, when tho elaborate improvements of
these springs shall have been completed, thousands will flock to the cool waters of this shady retreat.
