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.

Shepherds Mill Road


As part of Carroll County’s ongoing effort to maintain our existing structures, on or

about October 3, 2022, the Department of Public Works will close Shepherds Mill Road 

at Little Pipe Creek for replacement of the bridge structure. This closure is expected to 

last for one year. Detour routes will be posted. Please see our "NOTICES" page for contact information with the Carroll County Department of Public Works; Roads Operations.
