Where is Hampstead, MD?
Between 1736 and 1738, Robert Owings was assigned to “cut a new road as Christopher Gist had marked it” south from Conewago (now Hanover, Pennsylvania) to a point about halfway to Fort Garrison in Baltimore County. The village of Spring Garden became a stage-line stop on the new road and later became the town of Hampstead, named after the town of the same name in England. The first settlers to the area were English immigrants who made their way west from the Port of Philadelphia. They were followed by Scots and Germans. The town was used by farmers from surrounding areas as a center to obtain goods brought from Baltimore and to send produce to markets in Baltimore and Pennsylvania. The level and fertile land, coupled with the availability of lime, gave farmers important advantages for successful farming. In 1879, the Harrisburg Division of the Western Maryland Railroad reached the area. The accessibility of the railroad attracted new residents and made dairy farming profitable.
Like several areas in Carroll County, the town has developed from a farming community to a modern town of about 6,300 residents. Community activities center around the town’s numerous organizations and its schools – Hampstead Day, the Farmers’ Market, and the Lions Club, for examples.
The Town Office was once located in a side room of the old First National Bank building on Main Street. (This building is now the Police Department’s station.) During the Depression the bank closed and was later purchased by Mayor Les Wheeler, who in 1950 rented it to the Town. In the late 1960s the Town Office moved to the basement of Hampstead Baptist Church on S. Carroll Street. In 1980 the church moved into a larger structure along Route 30 and Town Office, along with the Police Department, were able to use the entire building on S. Carroll Street. In 2000 the Police Department moved into the old First National Bank building, now fully restored – bringing the Town full circle. Although the Mayor and Council had the authority since 1888 to appoint constables, it wasn’t until the 1950s that James Boone became the Town’s first official police officer.
Incorporated in 1888, the Town celebrated its 125th Anniversary in 2013.
