Welcome to Downtown Sykesville
A charming former railroad hub along the Patapsco River, Sykesville is home to a vibrant community, a thriving downtown, and numerous attractions for the whole family. A state and nationally designated Main Street Community, the Town has plenty to offer its residents, business owners and visitors.
One facet of the Town’s past remains a centerpiece today: the railroad. Railway travel was a significant factor in creating and securing the foundation of Sykesville proper. Today, we honor this history through attractions like the S&P Railway model train displays and the Little Sykes Railway Park.
