Pittsville is a rural town in Wicomico County, situated east of Salisbury, MD with a rich history rooted in agriculture and railroad industry.
Early development of Pittsville began in 1834 with the opening of Levin Derrickson’s general store. The area became known as Derrickson’s Cross Roads. In 1848, a charter was issued for the development of the Wicomico & Pocomoke Railroad. This railroad would ultimately put Pittsville on the map.
In 1855, a post office was established, with Mrs. Mary Farlow being the area’s first postmistress and Mr. James Fooks, the town’s first postmaster.
By 1945, Pittsville became incorporated. This allowed the town to tax residents in order to install a stoplight and begin trash collection. The Pittsville Lions Club was organized in October of 1945, with its first president being James R. Truitt. Essel T. Farlow took over the following year, and also worked as the zoning chairman for the town. Lester Brittingham, the third president (1947-1948), helped in the construction of the Lion’s Club building.
