Location & Business

Barclay is a small crossroads community in agricultural northern Queen Anne's County at the intersection of Maryland Routes 313 and 302. The town is comprised mostly of single family houses sheltering approximately 150 people. It has several family-owned businesses, the largest of which is Delmarva Sash and Door Company, Inc., which was founded in October 1942 and employs approximately 125 people. Other businesses include a retail tire outlet, a lawn and garden equipment repair shop, a burial vault company, an automotive body shop, and a grocery/deli store.

Railroad System

The town is visited several times a week by trains of the Maryland and Delaware Railroad Co. carrying grain, fertilizer, paper, and lumber products. The railroad was integral to local commerce in a former age when the town boasted a passenger depot, a passenger boarding house, and a milk depot that served area farmers.


The community was founded in 1873 as Merrikton and renamed Barclay in 1890. The designation "Town of Barclay" came with the town's incorporation in February 1931. The town's only employee is a part-time clerk / treasurer who works closely with the town commissioners in the daily operation of the town.
