Oldfields School, Maryland's oldest girls' boarding school, is situated on more than 200 acres in Baltimore County. Anna Austen McCulloch founded the school in 1867, when she and her family moved into an old farmhouse on her brother's land in Glencoe, Maryland. Built in the 1700s, the modest clapboard home still stands as the oldest building at Oldfields and is affectionately known as "Old House." Mrs. McCulloch educated the younger members of her family and a few local children in her home. The lessons she taught created the foundation for the philosophy and tradition that Oldfields embraces today
