Welcome to the official website for the Town of Union Bridge.

Union Bridge is located in the heart of the Piedmont Plateau on the western edge of Carroll County. The gently rolling terrain and meandering streams offer outstanding rural scenes at every turn in the road.

Settled as a farming community well before the Revolutionary War, Union Bridge was chartered by the Maryland General Assembly on May 2, 1872.


The town’s leading industries are the Lehigh Portland Cement Company and the Maryland Mid-land Railroad located on North Main Street.

CENSUS 2020


The U.S. Census Bureau conducts a count of every person living in the United States every 10 years, mandated by the U.S. Constitution in Article 1, Section 2.  The data collected by the decennial census determines the number of seats Maryland has in the U.S. House of Representatives and is also used to distribute billions in federal funds to its local communities. 
  • It's Important
  • It's Easy
  • It's Safe
  • It's Right Around the Corner - April 1, 2020
  • The Census will be available online on March 12, 2020.
