Life in Aberdeen

Aberdeen is a city located in Hartford County, Maryland. It has a population of around 14,000 people.

Aberdeen, Maryland is named after Aberdeen, Scotland.

Aberdeen, Maryland is home to the Aberdeen Proving Ground, which, starting in World War I, was used to by the army as a bomb-testing range. However, its use for that purpose is decreasing. A large portion of the former proving ground is being leased to commercial developers, which is expected to provide a major economic boon for the region.

The Aberdeen Proving Ground is still an active military base, despite the fact that some of it is being leased. An active military base, especially in a smaller community, is going to influence the culture of that community. Because service members from all over the country tend to be stationed on military bases, they bring their own unique character to the area where the base is located.

In addition to the obvious economic benefits that a large, constant consumer base creates, the diversity that such a facility brings in tends to have intangible benefits, as well.
