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.

As of June 8, 2020, the Town Hall Foyer is open to the public.  Face Masks are required when you enter the foyer, remember to practice social distancing and use hand sanitizer.

During this challenging time, as we deal with the impacts of COVID-19, the Town of Union Bridge will continue to provide essential services for our residents.  During this period of social distancing, the Town encourages using a telephone, email communication, and use of the “DropBox” rather than face to face interaction.

Town Council meetings, Work Session meetings and Planning and Zoning meetings will be held utilizing "GoToMeeting".  Login information will be posted on the Town's website, the Town Hall Front Door and the Information Kiosk at the Town square.

If you are experiencing financial difficulty due to COVID-19 and need to discuss your water/sewer payment, please call Union Bridge Town Hall at 410-775-2711.  During this challenging time, the Town will not be turning water off for non-payment.  However, you will still be responsible for water/sewer payment, and it is your responsibility to contact the Clerk-Treasurer 410-775-2711 or email at to discuss a payment plan.


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.
