Since our recent “Streetscape” project, Main Street has truly come alive! Our many active Main Street businesses are eager to welcome you.  Please take time to visit. I promise a time well spent. As Mayor, Main Street businessman, and resident myself, I can assure your experience will be a delight for the entire family. You’ll find a surprising array of businesses to serve your needs. Whether it’s visiting our retail shops, barbers and beauty shops (for people & pets!), our service businesses, or eateries, there is something for everyone—including a smile. Taneytown’s best asset is our people! We truly are a Small Town with a Big Heart!

We proudly present this new web site. Keep up on all that is happening on Main Street. Be sure to bookmark this site for easy reference in the future. You’ll be glad you did. As always, your comments are welcome. Feel free to contact me.
