Downtown Sykesville

Since the 1890s, the physical characteristics of Sykesville remain largely unchanged. Architect J.H. Fowble and wealth of families such as the Warfields, Pattersons, and others created businesses, schools, and homes in our town that continue to make our historic district unique. Sykesville's preservation can heavily be attributed to Thelma Wimmer, who worked from the late 1960s through her death in 2009 to improve and preserve the town. As a historical setting, the town Main Street has been featured in such films as "Cry Baby" (1990), and "Head of State" (2003).
