Grahamtown is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) in Allegany County, Maryland, United States, located at the southeast edge of Frostburg. As of the 2010 census it had a population of 364.[1] It is part of the Cumberland, MD-WV Metropolitan Statistical Area.

Etymology

The town takes its name from Curtin Graham, who owned a farmhouse at this site, surrounded by several small service buildings in the 1880s. A fire gutted the farmhouse in 1995, leaving only an uninhabited shell. Grahamtown is also known as Wright's Crossing, marking the point where Maryland Route 36 crosses Welsh Hill.[2]
