Historic Berlin, MarylandThe village of Berlin began in the 1790s around the original, 300 acre, land grant of 1677 that became Burley Plantation. It is believed that the name Berlin was derived from a contraction of "Burleigh Inn" a tavern at the crossroads of the Philadelphia Post Road and Sinepuxent Road.

Main Street was originally part of the path connecting the Assateague Indians with the neighboring Pocomoke tribe. In colonial times the path became the Philadelphia Post Road, the main route up the Shore to the commerce centers to the North and west. In the early 1900s, Berlin was known as a pleasant rest stop for travelers on their way to the small coastal village of Ocean City MD. At one time, it boasted more overnight accommodations than Ocean City.

The town's residential areas preserve nearly two centuries of architectural heritage from the Federal, Victorian and American schools of architecture. Many of the historic homes are graced by mature shade trees and shrubs. Magnolias, sycamores, tulip poplars, bald cypress and ginkgo trees add to the beauty of Berlin's peaceful streets.

The Town has undergone considerable revitalization of its historic downtown commercial district since the late 1980s, through a joint effort between the public and private sectors. The downtown and adjacent historic district are listed on the National Register of Historic Place, as are several individual buildings. The Town is designated by the State of Maryland as a "Main Street Community" in recognition of its revitalization progress.

Berlin (accent on the first syllable) has all the special character of the southern Eastern Shore. Harmonious rows of red brick buildings line Berlin's downtown Main Street offering a number of antique, jewelry, and gift shops as well as several excellent restaurants.
