Churchville is an unincorporated community in Harford CountyMaryland, United States, situated between the county seat, Bel Air, and Aberdeen, where the Aberdeen Proving Ground is located.


The population of the area is 2,818.

Because it links Bel Air and Aberdeen (and indirectly, the only other incorporated town in Harford County, Havre de Grace), Churchville was once known in colonial times as Lower Cross Roads. The town has agricultural origins and is known for its many picturesque churches, particularly Churchville Presbyterian Church, at the center of town and Holy Trinity Episcopal Church.

Churchville is home to the champion Little-leaf Linden of Maryland, which made its debut on the list of American Forests Champion Trees in 2018. It is the largest known tree of its species in the country.[1]

The official motto, "We've got corn, we've got straw, welcome to Churchville, yee-haw!" has its origins tied to the town's rural agricultural past, although the exact manner and date of the phrase's creation remains contested by area historians.[3]

An abandoned Crown gas station, in central Churchville, was used for a scene in the Netflix original series House Of Cards in 2016.[4]After its usage by Netflix, the gas station was left abandoned, in which residents, who had signed a demolition petition, criticized the county for not utilizing the money generated from the production to remove the building. Crown has also been criticized for its lackluster effort to purify the soil below the station when the fuel tanks were removed after its closing
