From The National Register of Historic Places Inventory Nomination Form

"The Town of New Market has been relatively unspoiled by the passage of time, remaining much as it was in its beginning, a small drover’s town built to service the many travelers going to and from the Baltimore markets. It is in appearance the quintessence of the c. 1800 small town in western central Maryland. It is well-preserved and shows more original fabric and a more representative development from the Federal into the Greek Revival and Victorian periods than other towns in the area. Its Federal style buildings are well-executed, showing the high level of craftsmanship attainable at the time. Western Maryland towns such as New Market are different from towns in the Tidewater region in several respects: (1) an economy based on overland commerce rather than on water transportation, (2) the linear layout along a single street instead of a pattern of several streets, and (3) the difference in building design and proportion in the two regions.
