Funkstown was founded in 1767 and known as Jerusalem until it was eventually incorporated in 1840. It is conveniently located east of Hagerstown and affords residents easy access to the larger city’s shopping, dining, and entertainment options. Funkstown became a popular stop along the Old National Pike when the road cut through the community in 1823. Throughout the twentieth century, it continued to grow, but eventually, railroads transformed the town into a quiet residential community. Today there are a number of delightful shops and antique stores in the community, lining Baltimore Street, also known as U.S. 40, in the Historic Town Center. Along the same stretch, you’ll find a handful of charming restaurants as well. Altogether there are more than thirty businesses in Funkstown selling everything from home decor to hobby supplies, and services like doll repair and beauty salons.
In addition to these amenities, the town also hosts delightful annual events and festivals, such as the popular Olde Tyme Christmas and the Battle of Funkstown/Day in the Park.
