Located just minutes from Ocean City, Maryland and Assateaque Island National Seashore, Berlin enjoys a superb location and the Town and surrounding area offers a variety of activities to visitors.

Today the town is a wonderful example of what can be done when citizens work together for the success of their community. The renovation of the town center and the historic preservation of the commercial and residential districts are a result of the cooperative efforts of local citizens, businesses and the town government. Berlin's beautiful tree-lined streets, Victorian town center, museum and historic homes captivate those who visit.

47 individual structures in Berlin are noted in the National Register of Historic Places and represents nearly two centuries of architectural heritage. These structures are well- preserved or renovated and date from three distinct periods: Federal, Victorian and 20th Century. The town center features mostly brick structures with compatible roof lines, proportionate window and door openings, uniform setbacks from the street and bulkheads beneath the lower windows. Magnolias, sycamores, tulip poplars, bald cypress and ginkgo trees add to the beauty of the town's settings.

The town of Berlin had its start around the 1790s, part of the Burley Plantation, a 300-acre land grant dating back to 1677. The name Berlin is believed to be derived from a contraction of "Burleigh Inn", a tavern located at the crossroads of the Philadelphia Post Road (now South Main Street) and Sinepuxent Road (Tripoli Street). This may be why the traditional pronunciation of the town's name is BURL-un, as opposed to the more modern pronunciations BER-LIN and ber-LIN. The traditional pronunciation is rarely heard today.
