There are a little under 2,000 people in the town and the majority seems to be white collar professionals.

The median age is 41.3, so it means that most of the white collar professionals are in their peak earnings years. Geez, opinions are never as accurate as taking two minutes to do the math.

Owings CDP, Maryland - Fact Sheet - American FactFinder


The numbers are wrong and your assumptions are wrong. Owings is not a "town", it's a Zip Code that runs from Milwaukee Ave. just outside North Beach west to MD Rte 2/Rte 260, where the Owings RR station used to be located. That's a distance of about 4 miles and contains over 500 houses just from the Calvert County/Anne Arundel County border south to a line with 1st St. in North Beach and not the whole way to Rte. 2 only about halfway. I had to count them in order to estimate sewer usage a few years ago. It also extends a bit into Anne Arundel County about a mile and has roughly 100 houses.
From Route 2/260 it extends south another three miles to Skinner's Turn Rd. and then cuts across to link up to Mt. Harmony Rd. I don't know how many households are in that section, several new multi-hundred house developments went in there over the last ten years. Upshot, the population figure of 2000 is wrong. Which isn't unusual for Calvert County. Historically people here don't respond to the Census. The numbers Calvert County uses for planning purpose for business recruitment includes North Beach (2000 pop.), Chesapeake Beach (4500 pop.) and Owings (8000 pop.).

I agree. Selby On The Bay was right around the corner from my house when I lived there in MD. There is no way it should rank on that list. It's also not a place. It's a subdivision. If they're going to add places like that then they clearly left The Downs, South River Landing, South River Colony, Sherwood Forest and Gibson (huge bucks $$$$) Island off.

NBP is right. Owings isn't a town. It's more like country. Trees, farms, barns, horses, tractors, subdivisions, a shopping center or two and a post office.

There are very few "towns" in MD in the sense of an actual incorporated town with a main street and a city hall. They only number 160 in the entire state. Most of the rest of the "towns" are just areas with a post office. There is no core.

Anne Arundel County only has 2 real towns. Annapolis and Highland Beach.

In contrast I live in NC now. There are hundreds and hundreds of incorporated towns here. I don't want to count them but here's a list. List of municipalities in North Carolina - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Strange to see Darnestown and North Potomac divided to two separate listings.
