With a population of 31,000, Abingdon is a medium-sized community, but with a wonderful small-town feel. This is due to the fact that until 2020, Abingdon was an unincorporated community, before being reclassified as a census-designated place. Abingdon is located 25 miles northeast of Baltimore, via Interstate 95. Not only is it ideal for commuters, but it also makes road trips along the Eastern Seaboard more accessible as well. For longer trips, Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI) is only 35 miles away as well.
Schools in Abingdon are under the jurisdiction of the Harford County Board of Education. Younger children attend William S. James Elementary School, or Abingdon Elementary School. Older students attend Edgewood High School in nearby Edgewood, a highly-rated school which features excellent SAT scores and statewide test results.
Abingdon is a popular location for those looking for a quiet, suburban feel, within commuting distance of Baltimore. It also features slightly more affordable real estate than surrounding cities, while home values remain similar to the state average.
Most of the real estate in Abingdon was built in the 1970s or later, and most homes for sale are single-family units with three to four bedrooms, and large yards perfect for families. Detached homes feature colonial styling, with stone, brick or siding, and two floors with an underground basement. Older homes feature modern upgrades, including kitchens with self-closing cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.
Single-family row houses are also prevalent in neighborhoods between Emmorton Road and Saint Mary’s Church Road. These homes generally feature 3-4 bedrooms spread over 3 floors of living space, perfect for young professionals, growing families, or those looking to downsize. The smaller, fenced backyards and decks still allow for outdoor space and entertaining, with much less maintenance. Smaller apartments and condos can be found in the constant Friendship and Norris Corner areas in the center of Abingdon. Many units feature full upgrades, or are priced to renovate to your needs.
While Abingdon is a more modestly-sized community, residents enjoy a plethora of convenient amenities and activities in the area. With three shopping centers in Abingdon, there is no shortage of grocery stores, big box retailers, and other specialty stores for necessities.
Abingdon also features a small, but diverse number of eateries and restaurants. While there are a number of popular chains, like Chick-Fil-A or Cracker Barrel, there are also a number of highly-rated local establishments as well, including Barrett’s on the Pike, Bushmill Tavern, Island Spice Grill and Lounge, Ocean City Brewing Company, and Broom’s Bloom Dairy. Abingdon is also home to world-famous Box Hill Pizzeria Crab Cakes, which ships its delectable crab cakes nationwide.
Lending to its family-friendly reputation, Abington features numerous parks and conservation areas, perfect for exploring the outdoors. Leight Park is one of the premier areas for outdoor recreation in the area. Located on the banks of the Bush River, and featuring the Anita C. Leight Estuary Center, there is no shortage of walking trails, kayaking and canoeing, and outdoor fun for all ages. More traditional family parks, featuring picnic areas and sports fields and courts, can be found at both Bynum Run Park and William Longley Park.
