Ivory is an unincorporated community located at the Northwest tip of Howard County, Maryland. It is located between modern Glenelg, Maryland and West Friendship, Maryland.

History[edit]

The area is home to the estate of Enoch Selby who lived on the "Chapel of Ease" founded in 1750.[1]

The Ivory post office opened for the community on 4 July 1886. The post office was operated by postmaster William V. Sheppard until 1918.[2][3]

Sections of Ivory road remain, but most have been overlapped by Route 32. The path through town is now a segment of the Maryland Broadband Network awaiting lease.[4]
