Background: Seventy-five years ago, Glenn L. Martin moved his rapidly growing aircraft manufacturing facility to Baltimore and purchased 1,260 acres of land in Middle River. Everything the company needed was here, including water, rail and highways. On Oct. 7, 1929 the facility was officially opened and, at one point, more than 53,000 people worked at the facility. On Oct. 7, 2004, Lockheed Martin will celebrate its long history and bright future as a business member of the Baltimore community.
