Dundalk's origins go back to the year 1895, when Henry McShane relocated his world famous bell foundry to the area, shortly to be followed by the Baltimore and Sparrows Point Railroad, which needed a name for the local depot. The McShane family chose the name of Henry's birthplace (Dundalk, Ireland). In 1916, Bethlehem Steel Company purchased 1,000 acres of farmland in the area to develop housing for its shipyard workers. The Dundalk Company was organized to formulate a town and in 1917, Dundalk proper was founded. At the time of its formation, the new community had 62 houses, two stores, a post office, and a telephone exchange.
