Parkville, MD The ground upon which most of modern day Parkville presently stands was first surveyed in the colony of Maryland in 1735. It was Charles Calvert who gave permission to survey a 3,000 acre tract of land for Messers William Chetwynd and John Whitwick of Beddington in Surrey, England. One of the earliest settlers in the area was Dr. Jacob Hiss. His house, built in 1827, is still standing and in use as a residence. The first public school was erected in 1846 for a farming community. The school was a small wooden building heated by a wooden stove. The first church in Parkville was the Hiss Methodist Church. It was dedicated in 1842 and was named for the Hiss family who donated the land for the building. Saint John's Luthern Church followed in 1887.
