The History of New Carrollton
Carrollton claims its name from Charles Carroll, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Charles Carroll signed his name as “Charles Carroll of Carrollton.” The name caught on after that, with more than 10 states naming counties after him. So — how did Carrollton become New Carrollton?
Maryland had two towns named Carrollton. While a coin toss was tempting, a voter referendum was held instead and approved changing Carrollton to New Carrollton in the 1960s, shortly after Ernie’s opened.
