Worman’s Mill History

Our story goes back to 1746 when the land was first settled by Jacob Stoner, a German family. Ideally located along the Old Annapolis Road, Mr. Stoner and his family built their home and started their new life in America. In later years, the land was sold to the Worman family (not “Wormald” the creators of Worman’s Mill). The area became known as “Worman’s Mill” throughout the 19th and 20th century and hence the name for this premier new community along the Monocacy River.

Worman’s Mill is the second “neo-traditional small town” in the country planned shortly after Seaside in Florida. Worman’s Mill has captured national and international attention from as far away as Japan, South Africa, and Sweden because of its success in land planning and excellence in design. Winner of the national BEST IN AMERICAN LIVING AWARD, the State of Maryland Smart Growth Award, and over seventy regional design awards, Worman’s Mill is a truly unique and outstanding new home community.

At the center of Worman’s Mill is the Worman’s Mill Village Center designed in the motif of a small resort village with upscale restaurants and cafes, shops, and essential retail. A grand clubhouse, swimming pools, tennis courts, basketball, putting green, playgrounds, social clubs, walking trails, and award-winning signature parks featuring waterfalls, bridges, fountains, topiary gardens, and more all enhance every lifestyle.

The land is comprised of 307 acres nestled along the Monocacy River. Residences vary from multi-family homes, to townhomes, to villas, to single family homes. We encourage you to tour today to learn more about Worman’s Mill Living.
