HANCOCK, MARYLAND


Hancock, Maryland is a quaint locale that brings the ideal of Small Town America to life. The folks are friendly, the businesses are mostly owner and family operated, and the great outdoors are literally in our backyard. Our town is a crossroads for several major highways. We are centrally located and easily accessible to Interstates 70 & 68 and U.S. Routes 522 & 40. We're pleased to be part of the distinction that U.S. Route 40 has been given as the "All-American Road."

Hancock is nestled at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains of Western Maryland along the banks of the Potomac River. We are minutes away from the borders of Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Hunting and fishing in the area has been a long standing tradition. Bicyclists, skaters, walkers, joggers, and natures lovers utilize the C&O Canal towpath and the Western Maryland Rail Trail, both just parallel to Hancock's Main Street. Camping, horseback riding, and boating also lend to Hancock's reputation for year round outdoor recreational experiences.

As the saying goes, "It's always the quiet ones that you have to watch," and that stands true for the town of Hancock. For two and a half centuries we've been geographically positioned to witness the history of U.S. travel, commerce, and culture unfold.

Now we'd like to share our heritage with you. An active Historical Society, Arts Council, and Chamber of Commerce, along with numerous churches and civic organizations, reflect our people's commitment to community. We love this picturesque Mason-Dixon Line town with its sense of nostalgia that is a complement to the revitalization improvements made by the town government. We hope this web site tour will result in a personal tour and visit to Hancock, Maryland.

The Hancock Chamber of Commerce has developed this web site for several reasons. Naturally we wish to let you know about the area businesses that are here to serve you. But whether you are a visitor to the area, or a resident of the town or surrounding communities, we hope that this web site will serve as a reference guide for recreational activities and attractions of all kinds.

We invite your comments and suggestions. Please contact us with revisions and updates for local events. If you have any questions that have not been answered we will be happy to assist you. Thanks for stopping by, and come again.
