In beautiful Western Maryland, Washington County carries the unique distinction of being the first county in the nation to have been named for Georgie Washington. This well-established area has a long, rich history which is why you’ll find a seemingly endless list of historic and historical sites within its boundaries. Washington County also boasts a multitude of gorgeous parks and many exceptional cities, towns, and smaller communities from which prospective homebuyers would be delighted to choose. Among them is Hancock, Maryland.
Hancock is found in the westernmost part of the county, sitting alongside the Potomac River at Maryland’s narrowest point. The community has a long, rich history, including the opening of its Main Street in 1818, the National Pike. The town played an important role during the Civil War as both sides struggled for control of the Potomac and the C&O Canal. In fact, at one point the town was held for ransom by the Confederates. Today Hancock is home to the Bowles House, a treasure of curated living during the height of the Canal, and the C&O Canal National Historic Park visitor’s center. Additional points of interest include several restaurants, the Blue Goose Fruit Market and Bakery, the Western Maryland Rail Trail, and the C&O Canal Towpath. Joining the C&O Canal Towpath is West Virginia’s Tuscarora Trail, which crosses the Potomac River in Hancock and connects to the Big Blue Trail on the other side.
Another appealing feature of Hancock is its boat launch at the river. It is located at Little Tonoloway Recreation Area along the C&O Canal. All of these remarkable amenities and attractions add to the appeal of Hancock real estate. Homes for sale in Hancock are primarily single-family residences, with few exceptions. Real estate in Hancock includes houses of various architectural styles, ages, and sizes, to accommodate homebuyers in all stages of life. Because of the variety of properties in Hancock, listing prices typically fall across a relatively broad range.
