Town Hill

Town Hill, in Allegany County, Maryland, was once marketed as the "beauty spot of Maryland". The views from the top of the hill are truly spectacular - it is one of the few places in the area where one can see the valleys that make up this part of the state - the views are definitely better than what one finds from the cut at Sideling Hill.

There is a hotel at the summit, built to house automotive travelers in the early 20th century. An awning was even constructed so that the weather might not bother those who had stopped to enjoy the view.
