LOCAL GOVERNMENT

COUNTIES


[photo, Prince George's County Courthouse, Duvall Wing, Upper Marlboro, Maryland] For much of Maryland, local government typically is county government. Twenty-three counties and Baltimore City make up the twenty-four main local jurisdictions found in Maryland. Baltimore City, although a municipality, has been considered on a par with county jurisdictions since the adoption of the Maryland Constitution of 1851.
