History

A 48-hour waiting period was imposed in 1938, but Elkton continued to be a place to marry, and especially elope; it simply took longer. In time, Las Vegas became the new "American Gretna Green," although hundreds of people are still married in Elkton each year. The population was 11,893 as of the 2000 census. It was formerly called Head of Elk because it is located at the head of navigation on the Elk River (Maryland) River, which flows into the nearby Chesapeake Bay.

On March 8, 1781, the Marquis de Lafayette embarked his troops to attempt a capture of Benedict Arnold. George Washington and Jean-Baptiste Donatien de Vimeur, comte de Rochambeau with their combined forces stopped in Elkton on September 6-7, 1781, while on their way to Yorktown.
