History of Owings
Prior to the Civil War Owings was much like most of southern Maryland surrounding it, full of tobacco farms. It got its name from the Owings family that had long settled into the area since the 18th century. Most notably the town is particularly named after Harry P Owings who lived in the Owings house on Solomons Road.
The Owings family played a key role in the development of the North Beach and Chesapeake Beach areas turning it into a summer resort area. They were also a key component to the planning of the Chesapeake Beach Railway which brought much commercialization into the area. The Owings railway stop was the only one located in Calvert County at the time.
