Jefferson History

Jefferson is an unincorporated community, established in 1774, called New Town. The name was changed to Jefferson and it was incorporated as a town in 1831. However, a year later, in 1832, the citizens of the town decided that municipal government was unnecessary, so then, it was disincorporated.

Jefferson’s location on the main road from Frederick to Harpers Ferry brought growth, and along with it, commercial development. A local favorite today, Hemp’s Meats, was established in 1849, and is still owned by the Hemp family. Hagerstown and Frederick were linked to Jefferson in 1907 via the railway.
