History

Far enough from the city to be quaint, close enough to enjoy the attributes of the city, Middletown, Maryland is ideally situated in the beautiful Middletown Valley of Maryland.

Founded in 1767, Middletown is steeped in American history from the mid 1600's and Colonial settlements to the new millennium and high-tech biological engineering, Middletown contributes at every turn of the page.

A young Lieutenant George Washington surveyed the South Mountain area and commented that the Middletown Valley was one of the most beautiful places he had ever seen. The Revolutionary and Civil Wars passed through Middletown along Main Street, the Old National Pike, turning our homes and churches into headquarters and hospitals.

Middletown is a Maryland Heritage Area and is part of the official "Heart of the Civil War Heritage Area" as certified by the Maryland Department of Planning.
