Originally part of Pennsylvania, Rising Sun became part of Maryland when the Mason-Dixon line was established in 1765. In the early 1700s the town was called Summer Hill and had five wagon trails leading into its center and meeting at the Rising Sun tavern; when a post office was established in 1815 the town changed its name to that of this popular meeting spot.
