Incorporated in 1882, the Town of Perryville in Cecil County,
Maryland offers a wide variety of services. The Town currently
has over 3,670 residents and is the second largest town in Cecil
County. The Town of Perryville is governed by a Mayor and four
Commissioners. The Mayor and Commissioners are responsible
for the operation of the Town.
The rich history of the Town of Perryville began in 1608 when Captain
John Smith became the first European explorer to navigate the
Susquehanna River and visit the area. Perryville was first settled in
1622 when Edward Palmer was granted a patent for a settlement on
what is now Garrett Island. In the 1600s, Lord Baltimore granted
George Talbot 31,000 acres of land which included the Perryville area.
Before incorporation in 1882, Perryville was known as Lower Ferry,
circa 1695, Susquehanna, circa 1700s, and finally Perryville was
named after Mary Perry, the wife of John Bateman.
