Once a vital link on the B&O branch railroad
Located eight miles south of Hagerstown on Antietam Creek, Keedysville is a fast developing residential community of over 1,000. The Boonsboro-Shepherdstown Pike (Rt. 34) bypasses traffic around the town, keeping Keedysville a quiet and charming rural town. Just west of Keedysville lies Crystal Grottoes Cavern, Maryland's only commercial underground cavern. The Antietam Overlook Farm Bed & Breakfast attracts visitors who enjoy the country atmosphere and nearby historical landmarks.
Keedysville was settled by John and Samuel Keedy. Originally called Centerville, the name was changed to Keedysville when the post office was established. Once a vital link on the B & O branch railroad line from Weaverton to Hagerstown, parts of the train station remain intact today.
