Hughesville is a census-designated place (CDP) in Charles County, Maryland, United States. The population was 1,537 at the 2000 census.


Hughesville is located at coor dms|38|32|1|N|76|46|56|W|city (38.533731, -76.782220)GR|1.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 11.2 square miles (29.0 km²), all of it land.

Hughesville was a tobacco market town. The former tobacco warehouses are now used for second-hand thrift stores and boutique gift and craft shops. A highway bypass around the town opened in February 2007, which has alleviated previous rush-hour traffic backups at the single traffic signal; however, aesthetic improvements to perfect the bypass are still ongoing. A few miles southeast is an Amish community and farmers' market (see article on Charlotte Hall). Because Hughesville, though small, is considered the strategic geographic center of the tri-county Southern Maryland region, it houses institutions such as the headquarters for the Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative, a humane society, an economic development council, a board of realtors, and a homeless shelter, which serve the tri-county area. The town has no traditional grid-layout streets, but consists of merely businesses along the highway and some very small outlying housing developments.


As of the censusGR|2 of 2000, there were 1,537 people, 503 households, and 407 families residing in the CDP. The population density was 137.4 people per square mile (53.0/km²).
