Harford County is currently home to three large incorporated municipalities, Aberdeen, Bel Air and Havre de Grace. In the beginning, however, numerous Native American Indians roamed the land, including the Susquehannocks, Patuxents and Piscataways tribes. The first Englishman to explore the Chesapeake Bay area was Captain John Smith from England who mapped the entire Harford County area. By 1661, the town of Old Baltimore on the east bank of the Bush River was established. Abingdon was the birthplace of William Paca, a former governor of Maryland and a signer of the Declaration of Independence.
