Orig from big cities, we are two older professional adults moving to Catonsville for new jobs. We want to rent a house in a quiet safe area with (ahem) little or no diversity or liberalism. We are social and want to make friends with our neighbors. Not meant to offend anyone here, sorry, but we don't want to live in mixed or black areas. Will travel 30-45 mins for the right place. Suggestions?

You probably should post this in the General Maryland forum, not the Washington DC sub-forum.

At any rate, I'd suggest Sykesville, Marriotsville, Eldersburg, Woodbine or Mt Airy. These are all north or west of Catonsville with good access to highways for commuting. I'd suggest checking the distance with Google maps.

BTW, there will be some minorities and some liberals in all of these towns. I will leave it up to you to check the specific town profiles at City-data.com . It has the ethnic composition and the voting record of most towns. For example, see: http://www.city-data.com/city/Eldersburg-Maryland.html

Have you found this anywhere else?
I bet it was boring as hell if you did.

In that case you may need to first build a time machine or just stay where you are now.

Hmmm Carroll County. It's like 90% white and 80% republican. I guess that's what you care about. Severna Park might be an option to.

If you want to look at the demographics of the area, look up the NY Times 2010 census map. It allows you to look at changes in population, population density and racial distribution in 2010. Of course some areas have changed in the past 7 years.

If you are eligible for 55+ housing and would be interested in renting a luxury apartment, there is Alta at Regency Crest in Ellicott City. It should be fairly quiet, and it is much closer to your jobs in Catonsville.

Ellicott City is quite diverse, so it is possible that it would not conform to the OP's other requirements.

Some neighborhoods in Ellicott City are very white. Some are about a 50/40/10 ratio of Whites/Asians/Blacks respectably.

There are houses for rent in Syskesville and Eldersburg for between $1750 and $3300 per month. Both are in Carroll County, and about 45 minutes from Catonsville. There are also apartments for rent. Ellicott City has lots more things to do, so I thought the OP might consider an option. A luxury apartment would typically be very safe.

Well too bad, that is extremely offensive and I'm sorry you feel that way.

Good luck with your search, but you may find that Maryland, as a whole, is not accepting of that train of thought, even in the least ethically diverse and most conservative areas.
