Allegany County is in the western portion of Maryland. Allegany County was formed in 1789 from Washington County. Allegany comes from the Native American word oolikhanna, meaning "beautiful stream."

There are three state parks; Dan's Mountain State Park, Green Ridge State Forest and Rocky Gap State Park.
