Welcome to Sharpsburg!  We are glad you are here.  Please take a moment to browse around and get familiar with our unique town.  Take a step back in time and enjoy our old town charm.  Please feel free to leave comments and suggestions about what you would like to see, or how we can better serve you.

Founded in 1825 and incorporated in 1871 Sharpsburg was named for a judge, Elias Sharp, who owned one of the first homes.  Sharpsburg was a thriving small town up until the early 1900s with cotton gins, warehouses, a drug store, a bank, a blacksmith shop, a general store, and a post office.  The Depression in the ’20s began the decline in both business and population.  Today, the historic town of Sharpsburg still reflects the past.  Stroll through the Old Town and shop for gifts and antiques.  Or visit our recreation center to check out the beautiful quilts or oil paintings done by local clubs.  Feel free to inquire and join!  Both classes meet weekly.

If you have any questions, our office is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.  Our phone number is 770 251 4171 and ask for Donna.
