Gibson Island, Maryland
Gibson Island is a 1,000 acre beautiful community on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay where it meets the Magothy River. The luxury living offered here is ideal for a weekend getaway, vacation retreat or permanent home.
The Island is boasts a 35+ acre freshwater pond suitable for canoeing, fishing and swimming. Extensive nature trails provide recreational and transportation opportunities to access the Island’s many destinations.
Baltimore Judge W. Stuart Symington Jr. and others paid three farmers $165,000 for the island in 1922.
Gibson Island’s design as a recreational community is due to the 1922 plan created by the Olmsted Brothers of Brookline, Massachusetts. The natural topography is given primary consideration with buildings and roads sited harmoniously within it.
While responsible for the landscape, the Olmsted Brothers’ design separated areas with differing styles of architecture. This preserved and enhanced the areas’ sense of style. During the early 20th century, the Olmsted Brothers’ landscape architecture firm was considered to be without rival.
