Glenelg is a compromise. Situated in western Howard County, the area is ideal for couples who commute to Baltimore or Washington. And it is in the country without the in-the-middle-of-nowhere isolation. "It offers a rural lifestyle within minutes of suburban amenities," says Sharon Keeny, a Realtor who lives in Dayton and is a former president of the Glenelg High School Parent-Teacher-Student Association. Glenelg takes its name from a village in western Scotland. The name is also a language quirk known as a palindrome, meaning it is spelled the same forward and backward.
