About Romney

Romney is known for having all the benefits of a small-town while being within easy access to larger communities. With its contemporary mixture of history, commerce and arts, Romney is considered one of the State’s best kept secrets. Our town celebrates its proud heritage and looks forward to continued growth.

Residents and visitors enjoy: a vibrant arts community as represented with the Hampshire County Co-op and Heritage Market Place, the Hampshire County Arts Council, The Romney Project, the Honey Bee Music Studio, the Honey Bee Community Choir, the Ukulele Group, and many opportunities to enjoy your favorite pursuit of the arts.

Quality health care facilities in town are Trinity Family Health Care, LLC., Potomac Highlands Guild, Phillip Razzook, MD, FACS, and Razzook Family Dentistry.  Close by are Hampshire Memorial Hospital, Valley Health Clinic, Hampshire Center Long Term Care, Jerry M. Hahn, MD and Associates and Tim Nichols, DDS, Inc.

Commitment to Education.  Romney Elementary School and the Hampshire County Board of Education are located in Romney; Hampshire High and Hampshire Middle Schools are located just minutes from downtown Romney.


Recreation and the great outdoors. You’ll find that great adventures start in your own backyard. With some of the best ski resorts in the south approximately one hour away, hiking, access to fishing, canoeing and kayaking, an unparalleled blaze of fall colors, hunting, and golf courses a “short drive” from home— it’s easy to acknowledge why our region is recognized as one of our Nation’s tourism destinations!

The community also provides a wealth of youth activities to keep young minds sharp. Local youth organizations range from Scouting and art classes at “the Co-op” to youth baseball, soccer, and football.

Tourism. Romney is the home of the Potomac Eagle Scenic Railroad excursion train where rides through “The Trough” will most likely result in an eagle siting.

Community Support. Not only is Romney surrounded by natural beauty, we are also encompassed in community interest and support. With the cooperation and assistance of both city-wide and county-wide organizations such as, Refresh Restart Romney, The Romney Project, Romney Rotary Club, Romney Ruritan, Romney Lions Club, Hampshire County Chamber of Commerce, Hampshire County Arts Council, and the Hampshire County Development Authority, Romney continues to grow its family and business friendly community.
