History/General Information

“Fallston is a semi-rural community consisting mostly of farms and suburban-like developments within Harford County.

The county has a number of properties on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Historical Society of Harford County, one of the oldest county historical societies in Maryland, was established in 1885 to preserve, promote, and interpret the history of the county and its people.
