Upon the death of William in 1824, his son George Patterson sold 1,000 acres to his friend and business confidante, James Sykes. When the Baltimore Ohio Railroad extended its mainline to the town it was called “Horse Train Stop” as it has not yet been named as Sykesville. Incorporation was achieved in 1904 and a weekly newspaper, the Sykes Herald was published in 1913. It ran until the 1980s.
