The small, historic town of Sharpsburg, Maryland, in southern Washington County, is home to just over 700 residents. Many homes on Main Street in Sharpsburg look just as they did in 1862 when the Battle of Antietam was fought. Today Antietam National Battlefield is considered one of the most well preserved Civil War battlefields and is a scenic place to walk, hike, bike, explore and learn about history. The town’s longest-standing tradition is its Memorial Day parade, a glimpse of small-town America with marching bands, school groups, athletic teams, reenactors, beauty queens and more. The Chesapeake and Ohio (C&O) Canal is also accessible from several nearby points, offering additional opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Just remember to end your day outside with a trip to Nutter’s Ice Cream, just off the town square!
