Middletown, Maryland originated in 1767, boasting history older than our nation’s founding. Andrew Jackson, the nation’s seventh president, described the valley as “one of the most favored and delightful spots on earth.”
Located along Maryland’s Historic National Road, our main street made its mark as a bustling commercial center in the 19th century. Middletown’s main street felt the effects of the Revolutionary and Civil Wars firsthand, as churches and homes were transformed into headquarters and hospitals.
Our history helps tell our nation’s history and shaped our region’s personality. Though growth continues to be a part of our story, we retain our historic charm in the present day.
