Source: 2000 Census
Located half-way between Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, this small city of about 22,000 people is an example of a mill town all grown up. Centered around a cotton gin and textile mill, it was truly one of the original company towns.
Housing, education, and health care were taken care of by the mill owners. As the ginning business died out, the town transformed itself into a prime location for people commuting to either of the nearby big cities.
