A county in the U.S. state of Maryland, and the county where I live, located about 25 miles northeast of Baltimore, 65 miles southeast of Philadelphia and northeast of Washington D.C., and 40 miles west of Wilmington, Del. It has a population of about 250,000. Its county seat is Bel Air. The northern part of the county has mainly farms and is where I go to school. The other end is suburban and industrial. The former includes the towns of Pylesville, Whiteford, Street, and Jarrettsville (where I live :D), the latter includes Joppatowne, Edgewood, Aberdeen, and Havre de Grace. Bel Air is in the middle.
I live in Harford County. It is a very diverse county, with farmland on one end, and suburbs and office buildings on the other end.

A small county in Maryland, USA. The population is extremely low, and consists mainly of ugly white Ravens fans. In fact, only 3 people in the county are not Ravens fans, and they are all Asian. The teenagers there go to wealthy schools while their parents commute to Baltimore along I-95, taking about 6 hours to do so. 96.7% of Harford Countians above the age of 9 smoke pot. Almost all drivers in Harford County obey the speed limit religiously.

If you've ever gone from Baltimore to New York and had to pass through a slow, depressing town, where most people live along a major highway and no structure was more than 3 stories tall, you've probably been to Harford County.
Random guy: Dude I'm in Harford County.
Other dude: Isn't it depressing?
Random guy: Yeah, is that kid smoking a joint?
Other dude: Yeah and driving really slow and farming?
Random guy: Yeah, wow, that's depressing.
Other dude: I feel like I'm in the Midwest or something.

Harford County is a rather small county in North-central maryland, inbetween Baltimore and Cecil counties and boarding Lancaster and York counties of PA to the north.

A place that can be defined as two COMPLETELYYYYY different counties as far as life there goes.
Here's a key for you:
North of I95=Harford County
South of I95=Towns that are nothing like the rest of Harford County, more like mini-baltimores, except cleaner and smaller.

Places like Bel Air are examples of the ideal idea of American Suburban life; places like Fallston and Jarrettsville are examples of hick-filled small villages as the ones found in south-central PA; and places like Edgewood Havre de Grace and Aberdeen house all the minority residents of the county, and are part of a completely different world.

Havre de Grace and Aberdeen are two cities that kind of feed off of each other. If you live in one of them, you're going to know people in the other. Havre de Grace is a waterfront community, and has an extremely old-fashioned grid-style downtown, while Aberdeen is more like a rural-community gone Urban, while Edgewood is just a rather notoriously "high-crime" suburb of Bel Air, next to Joppatowne. 99% of the crime in the county happens in these places, as well as events all-together. Fortunately, they are still rather clean places when put next to Baltimore.

North of I95 communities are extremely white, suburban/rural, and ideal to just that. Everywhere outside of Bel Air in the north, in fact, is rural and has no commercial importance whatsoever. That is why people view harford county this way. For some god-forsaken reason, they chose a rather useless small little suburb as the county seat, as opposed to the oldest city in Maryland HdG or Aberdeen. Common sense; who is(are) the retard(s) who did that?

Now while the two 'cities', Aberdeen and Havre de Grace are extroadinarily small as far as cities go, with a combined area containing 40,000 people, they are independent and actualy function rather well. HdG used to be a rather poor antique community, but the council actualy did something and built over 3 new communities, as well as the fact that they actualy replaced entire Section 8 housing communities with new housing, and it has been expanding unbelievably within the last 4 years. Aberdeen has a crapload of shops, and is moreso the commercial stronghold of the county alongside Bel Air, however, while Havre de Grace is probably the Industrial equivelant.

Back to everybody's least favorite aspect of the county, however: North of I95 is, as reputed, EXTREMELY HICKISH!!! For god's sake, the ratio of north harford county is about 100,000 white people, 1,000 black people. Were it not for the South communities, it WOULD most DEFNITELY be 99.99999999999999% white. The KKK reign surpreme in places like Forest Hill and Jarettsville, as they do in Cecil County.

South is pretty cool.
North sucks balls.
You've been warned.
Harford County is like a mix between Beverly Hills, Texas, and Mini-Baltimore.

Harford County was formed in 1773 from the eastern part of Baltimore County. It contains Tudor Hall, birthplace of Abraham Lincoln's assassin, John Wilkes Booth. Harford County also hosted the signers of the Bush Declaration, a precursor document to the American Revolution.

The county was named for Henry Harford (ca. 1759-1834), illegitimate son of Frederick Calvert, 6th Baron Baltimore. Harford was the last Proprietary Governor of Maryland, but did not inherit his father's title because of his illegitimacy.

Havre de Grace, an incorporated city in Harford County, was once under consideration to be the capital of the United States rather than Washington, D.C.. It was favored for its strategic location at the top of the Chesapeake Bay; this location would facilitate trade while being secure in time of war. Today, the waterways around Havre de Grace have been silted, one of the primary environmental issues of Harford County.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 527 square miles (1,364 km²), of which, 440 square miles (1,140 km²) of it is land and 86 square miles (224 km²) of it (16.40%) is water.

The terrain rises in elevation and relief from south to north, with flat areas south of U.S. Route 40. The highest elevation, at 805 ft., is located near the Pennsylvania border in the county's northwestern corner. The lowest elevation is sea level along the Chesapeake Bay.
It pretty much sucks.

Obama is black?
