Ranchers, split-levels and Cape Cods that rest comfortably on manicured half-acre lots guard a secret in Rolling Acres, a 1950s subdivision tucked between Frederick Road and Route 40. It isn't one that homeowners have pledged to keep to themselves, interestingly enough, but one they want to share. After one enters the Ellicott City community by way of Dogwood Road and takes a few turns, a long driveway appears on an unassuming cul-de-sac, marked by an oversized white mailbox at the curb.
