Thurmont is a town in Frederick County, Maryland, United States. The population was 6,170 at the 2010 census. The town is located in the northern part of Frederick County (north of Frederick, Maryland, the county seat), approximately ten miles from the Pennsylvania border, along U.S. Highway 15. It is very close to Cunningham Falls State Park and Catoctin Mountain Park, which contains the presidential retreat of Camp David. Thurmont is also home to Catoctin Colorfest, an arts and crafts festival that draws in about 125,000 people each autumn.In 2005, Thurmont was designated as a "Main Street Maryland Community."HistoryOriginally incorporated as the Town of Mechanicstown in 1751, the name of the town was changed to Thurmont by an act of Maryland General Assembly on January 18, 1894. The name Thurmont is derived from thur, the German word for entrance to a mountain, and mons, the Latin word for mountain. At the time of the name change, the town had 1,000 residents, a fire department, a bank, and two hotels.
