Cooksville is an affluent semi-rural community with rolling hills and farmland in Western Howard County. Some of the most expensive homes on the East Coast are located in the western part of the county. Historically significant, Cooksville lies along MD Route 97, which is an early road that links Washington, DC with Gettysburg Pennsylvania. In late June of 1863, Cooksville was the site of a skirmish between Confederate soldiers led by General J.E.B Stuart and Union troops who were marching to Gettysburg to engage in the famous battle. Cooksville is an easy commute to Baltimore, Washington, DC, Annapolis, Frederick, Columbia and Ellicott City.
