When the first area land grants were handed out in 1754, Edward Diggs and Raphael Taney were given almost 8,000 acres. They laid out lots and sold them beginning in 1762. Taney, for whom the town was named, actually lived in St. Mary's County. He helped to design the layout and became the namesake, but never really lived here.
