Taneytown takes its name from Raphael Taney, a recipient of one of the first land grants in the area.  It was noted, however, that Taney likely never lived in the town that bears his name.  U. S. Supreme Court Justice, Roger Brooke Taney, author of the Dred Scott decision, born in 1777, shares a common ancestor with him.

Much of the town was added to the National Register of Historic Places as the Taneytown Historic District in 1986.  Taneytown was the first town in Maryland to make English the official language.
