Trip Planner USA  /  Maryland  /  Urbana
Urbana is a census-designated place located in southern Frederick County, Maryland. It lies at the I-270/MD 80 interchange, about 7.5mi southeast of Frederick.HistoryThe Urbana area was first settled in 1730. Urbana is home to the historic Landon House, which was built in 1754 in Virginia along the Rappahannock River and relocated to Urbana in 1840. The house served as a military academy and a hospital during the Civil War.Zion Episcopal church was built in 1802 and served as a house of worship until badly damaged by fire in 1961. Since 2005, it is being restored to its original condition for use as a museum. Amelung House and Glassworks was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. Stancioff House was listed in 1975 and Fat Oxen in 1979.GrowthThe original Urbana community has been somewhat overshadowed by more recent developments, such as the Villages of Urbana and the Urbana Highlands. These developments (begun in 1999) have swelled Urbana's population and put strain on the community's school system, police force, and utilities.In 2006, the Urbana Regional Library and Senior Center opened on Amelung Street. The facility includes three floors and over 25000sqft.Urbana has some of the highest quality ratings for elementary, middle, and high schools in Maryland. The population is very diverse and was named "The 2009 Best Selling Community in Maryland". The community has three swimming pools, a new district park, plenty of tennis and basketball courts and is close to the I-270 technology corridor.
