Welcome to Downtown Hagerstown

Just 70 miles west of the nation’s capitol, this bustling city — nicknamed the “Hub City” for the large number of railroads that have serviced the area through the years and the many key roadways that converge on the area today — is truly a city on the move. Recently cited in Money magazine as an “Up and Coming City,” Hagerstown was the first community in Maryland to have an Arts and Entertainment District — an area recognized as viable for stimulating the economy and improving the quality of life.

Upon entering the revitalized Downtown area, visitors and residents are greeted by a handsome Public Square, which proudly displays a giant clock dating to 1908. To this day, it’s still used by local buses as the indicator of arrival and departure times. While for some, the scene recalls memories of a bygone era, for others it marks the renaissance of this wonderful town center. From this square, several annual events are held, including the three-day Western Maryland Blues Fest in June, the Augustoberfest celebration in August — commemorating Hagerstown’s longtime Sister-City, Wesel, Germany — and the colorful Alsatia Mummers Parade in October. In addition, downtown Hagerstown boasts a wonderful mix of retail shops, restaurants, new residences and an eclectic entertainment scene.

Throughout the year, visitors can explore Hagerstown’s railroad heritage at the Roundhouse Museum, discover hidden downtown history on the African American History Tour, learn how the downtown area played its part in the Civil War through the Downtown Civil War Walking Tour and appreciate assorted architecture including early-19th century homes and the Art Deco style Professional Arts Building. And, a visit wouldn’t be complete without taking in a play at The Maryland Theatre, a performance by the Maryland Symphony Orchestra or a stroll through the City Farmers Market, which has been in operation since 1791. All together, it’s this wonderful diversity and captivating charm that continues to draw people to downtown Hagerstown.
