SYKESVILLE MAIN STREET - nested in Downtown Sykesville - is a charming railroad hub along the Patapsco River and a part of the Maryland Main Street Program. Sykesville is home to a vibrant community, a thriving downtown, and numerous attractions for the whole family. A state and nationally designated Main Street Community, the Town has plenty to offer its residents, business owners, and visitors. The history of our town remains a centerpiece today as the downtown as been meticulously preserved and renovated to maintain Sykesville's quaint small-town charm. Railway travel was a significant factor in creating and securing the foundation of Sykesville proper. Today, we honor this history through attractions like the S&P Railway model train displays and the Little Sykes Railway Park. Strategically mixed into the historical heritage landscape of Sykesville, art pieces, creative urban transformations and other placemaking initiatives jolt the surprise and excitement of our visitors.
