Cities and Towns

Cities and Towns

There are seven towns and one city incorporated in Washington County. Hagerstown (city) was founded in 1762. Towns include: Boonsboro (1792), Clear Spring (1821), Funkstown (1767), Hancock (1792), Sharpsburg (1763), Smithsburg (1813), and Williamsport (1823).
Unincorporated areas are also considered as towns by many people and listed in many collections of towns, but they lack local government. Various organizations, such as the United States Census Bureau, the United States Postal Service, and local chambers of commerce, define the communities they wish to recognize differently, and since they are not incorporated, their boundaries have no official status outside the organizations in question.
The Census Bureau recognizes the following census-designated places in the county: Cavetown, Chewsville, Fairplay, Fort Ritchie, Fountainhead-Orchard Hills (a combination of the communities of Fountainhead and Orchard Hills recognized as a unit by the Census Bureau), Halfway, Highfield-Cascade (a combination of the communities of Highfield and Cascade recognized as a unit by the Census Bureau), Keedysville, Leitersburg, Maugansville, Mount Aetna, Mount Lena, Paramount-Long Meadow (a combination of the communities of Paramount and Long Meadow recognized as a unit by the Census Bureau), Robinwood, Rohrersville, Saint James, San Mar, and Wilson-Conococheague (a combination of the communities of Wilson and Conococheague recognized as a unit by the Census Bureau).
