Welcome to the Town of Hancock, Maryland

Welcome to the Town of Hancock. Situated along the Potomac River, National Road, C & O Canal, and Interstates 68 and 70, Hancock is a hub of activity for travelers, visitors, and residents who appreciate small town living at its best. 

Located less than two hours from Baltimore and Washington D.C., we offer a slower paced existence where folks may enjoy our rich history, our natural resources, our arts and leisure activities, our fine schools, and our community of locals who have chosen Hancock as their home. 

We hope this website will help you explore our town, if you are new to it. 

If you are one of our residents, we hope the information found here will assist you in your endeavors. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the great things that are happening in Hancock. 

- Mayor Daniel A. Murphy
