The crossroads community was formed along the crossroads of old Mantgomery road and Columbia Pike a mile south of Ellicott City, Maryland. In 1913, James Booker Clark built a mansion at Elkridge Farm resembling the White House which was destroyed by fire on 2 July 1920 with a cracked water reservoir at a time when he was facing litigation against family for a failed coal mine project. A Target store in Long Gate shopping center occupies the site. A National Guard Armory and later Long Gate Shopping Center dominate the eastern boundaries. The location address has been absorbed as part of Ellicott City.
