DH has a job offer in Crownsville. Company is there now but might move into Prince Georges in another year or so. Not positive but possible so we need to keep that on mind when looking for a new home. Anyhow looking for information on towns with good schools. The more rural the better. Would hate to give up the chickens and i have a miniature horse. He needs very little space but has to be legal smile.gif. Schools are the most important, kids are 7 & 11. The 7 yr old has dyslexia. Thanks for any advice!

I live in Montgomery county, so I don't know about chicken and mini horse laws over east where you're looking. But Good luck with the move!

I live in DC, and I don't have any advice, but I wanted to say welcome (maybe) to the area!

I'd look into Anne Arundel County - I think the schools are better in general than in PG. It also seems to have more rural(ish) spaces, so would suit you better!

I would look in upper AA county too, I am thinking Gambrills, Pasadena, Arnold area. I used to live near that area and I recall some rural areas. I do think it is a rather expensive area, at least the parts with any land, more expensive than other areas of Maryland at least.

My mother in law lives in Bowie Md, and there is horse farm or something like that near her home. A person in her neighbor has horses on their property. I am not sure where Crownsville is in Maryland. The schools in Bowie are ok...I don't really know much about them but usually the wealthier neighborhoods have decent schools. Bowie is about 15 minutes from D.C.

Crownsville is a lovely, semi-rural place. Not sure about which schools go with which neighborhoods, but Millersville and Crofton are right nearby, semi-rural with good schools. Severn Chapel Road in Millersville is one of the most beautiful places in the whole county---I think :) Rolling hills, winding roads, horse farms, and homes with larger lots.
