*** Celebrating 125 Years ***
Welcome to the corner of Main
Street and the Internet. You have found the web site for the
Town of Hampstead, Maryland. We’re a small town in northeastern
Carroll County, a historic, family-oriented community with friendly
neighborhoods and successful small businesses.
is a community shaped by a road, the Baltimore-Hanover Pike.
The original settlement of “Spring Garden” was a wagon stop.
The Pike became our Main Street and the settlement eventually grew
into the Town of Hampstead. Unfortunately, the narrow,
two-lane road became increasingly more congested over the years
until 2009 when the Hampstead Bypass was built. With heavy
traffic moving around the town rather than through it, our future
has never looked brighter.
Hampstead, we have great schools, caring churches and wonderful civic
organizations. Residents enjoy a wide range of recreational
opportunities including our well-maintained local parks. As
Mayor, I’m proud of the high quality of municipal services we provide
and having one of the lowest property tax rates in the County.
In addition to core services like road maintenance, police
protection, trash removal, etc., we support community events like
Hampstead Day and the annual holiday lighting ceremony.
of the Town Council and our municipal employees, I hope you enjoy our
wonderful small town. When you are in the neighborhood, please stop
by and patronize our local businesses.
