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.
Visit our "History" page for more information about our small and beautiful communities past.
We are excited to present our new website!
Back in early August, our website host advised us that they were shutting down. This forced us to create a new website with a different webhost - Vista X Wix.
In order for us to continue to provide information to our community with as little change and disruption as possible, we have tried to mimic our old websites information. Due to a different format provided by our new webhost, even with the same information we had on the old site, it won't look the same.
We are still working on the site to make it more user friendly and easier to view. Adjustments will be made and this may take some time, so please bare with us. The new site also includes a mobile phone version.
In the meantime, please visit our entire desktop or mobile version website to see all of the changes.
