Urbana today . . .

    
Urbana today is a real estate boomtown. It is conveniently located in Frederick County, Maryland, a few miles west of the Frederick and Montgomery County line and 35 miles from Washington, DC and Baltimore. The two new-home subdivisions of The Villages of Urbana and Urbana Highlands are surrounded by woods and farmland and offer the advantages of outstanding schools and homes with lower prices and taxes compared to nearby counties. Real estate construction began in 2000, and Urbana eventually will have nearly 4,000 homes when build-out is completed.
     Urbana boasts a new village center with restaurants, banks, a grocery store and shops and miles of walking paths. Both new subdivisions have community centers with pools, tennis and basketball courts, tot lots and many homes to choose from. Nearby parks offer more tennis, softball and baseball diamonds, play areas, picnic tables and barbecues, soccer fields and acres of parkland for all Urbana residents. Two Elementary schools, a Middle School and High school — all highly-ranked — serve the Urbana community.
    Two Park-n-Ride lots are in Urbana and provide buses to Montgomery County and the Metro. MARC train stations are nearby for easy access to Washington, DC. Downtown Frederick is only six miles away and features outstanding restaurants, antiques and shopping in an award-winning historic town setting.
    In short, today’s Urbana is a wonderful community with houses for everyone. As the new communities near completion, Urbana will have even more to offer its residents. Come and see for yourself how the old and new come together
in Urbana.

 

. . . and Urbana yesterday

Located in the center of the area designated as “The Journey Through Hallowed Ground Corridor,” Historic Urbana was one of the first settlements in Frederick County. Originally known as Wooltown,  Urbana was settled in 1725 – making Urbana older than Frederick City! The area expanded in the 18th and 19th centuries as major centers of wool production at the Fleecy Dale Factory on Park Mills Rd., and whiskey distilling at Price’s Distillery. The Urbana area also was known for its glass and coffin factories, and for manufacturing the bricks that built much of Baltimore and Washington. Founded in 1831 as one of the first planned communities in the country, Urbana was laid out around the intersection of Rtes. 355 and 80 in 14 lots of approximately half an acre each, with farm lanes to reach the surrounding shared pastures. Many of the original historic homes are still in use and add much to the appeal of the area.
     The Civil War marched through Urbana on a number of occasions when the Georgetown Pike (now Urbana Pike, Rte. 355) was the major road west from Georgetown and Washington. The Monocacy National Battlefield, located just a few miles west, was the site of “the battle that saved Washington,” where Lew Wallace’s Union troops, though far outnumbered, held off Jubal Early’s Confederate forces and kept them from capturing the Nation’s Capitol. Urbana’s Landon House was the site of J.E.B. Stuart’s famous Roses and Sabers Ball.
    Woods’ Store, pictured here, once stood in the vacant lot across from the old Smith’s Store, now Urbana Home Store. The Buyer’s Best Realtors’ office is located in an 1820’s home built on three of the original 14 lots and located on what used to be Main Street. We’d love to help you find your right home in Urbana.
