City & Town Info

Explore the Charm of Harford County's Towns!

It was not until the latter part of the seventeenth century that we find the beginning of villages and towns in Harford County.
As men became mechanics, tradesmen, and commercial fisherman, small hamlets began to grow. Most of these -- such as Old Baltimore, Joppa and Bush -- were centers of government.

At a later date, Havre de Grace, Aberdeen and Bel Air were empowered by acts of the State Legislature to have their own local government and they became incorporated towns. 1

From the major industrial centers along the I-95 corridor, to the intense shoreline activity of the Bay area, to the more relaxed inland atmosphere -- Come Explore Harford's Charm!
