Welcome to our site!

Harford County was founded in 1773 and was named after Henry Harford, son of Frederick Calvert, the last Lord Baltimore.
The County boundaries are:

  • The Pennsylvania state line to the North
  • The Susquehanna River to the East
  • The Chesapeake bay to the South
  • The Little Gunpowder River and a line due north from its source to the West

The county consists of 439 square miles, of which the northern four-fifths lie on the rolling Piedmont Plateau and the southern fifth on the Coastal Plain.
