Churchville (aka - "C-ville") is an unincorporated town in Harford County, Maryland, located between the county seat, Bel Air and Aberdeen where the Aberdeen Proving Ground is located.

The town has agricultural origins and is known for its many picturesque churches, particularly Churchville Presbyterian Church, at the center of town. The population of the area is 2,818. Churchville was once home to the Archers, a prominent family in Maryland and U.S. History. Their home, Medical Hall, is still located in Churchville, and several of the Archer family are buried in the cemetery at Churchville Presbyterian Church.

What is franchise and dealership law?

Franchising law involves helping new business owners evaluate franchising opportunities, and assist in the purchase and operation of business franchises -- an alternative to starting a new, independent business from scratch. Franchising allows businesses owners to reduce their investment risk by associating with an established company, but may also require business owners to relinquish significant control over their business.
