Berlin was crowned Budget Travel’s Coolest Small Town in America and the Smithsonian named Berlin one of the 20 Best Small Towns to Visit.
“Travel back into the past with a stroll down Main Street in Berlin, Maryland”, says The Town of Berlin’s website. “The path you walk is the same as that taken by the Assateague and Pocomoke Indians well before the colonial period. Later, the path became the Philadelphia Post Road, the main route connecting the centers of commerce to the north and west. This area was part of the Burley Plantation, a 300-acre land grant dating back to 1677.
Berlin has also starred in two major motion pictures. In 1998 Berlin was the location for the filming of Paramount’s Runaway Bride starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts. In the movie Berlin became the fictional town of Hale, Maryland, Maggie’s (Julia Roberts) hometown. Main Street became a “hot” set as filming was done using many of the downtown shops, not to mention hundreds of locals as extras. Then in 2001 Berlin became “Treegap”, the fictional setting for Tuck Everlasting starring Sissy Spacek, Ben Kingsley, and William Hurt. Downtown Berlin was transported back to the turn of the century complete with dirt roads, horses and carriages, and period costumes.
The population of Berlin as of the 2000 census was 3,491 and current estimates place the population at about 4500.”

When it comes to deterring a break-in, the most effective deterrent is a professionally monitored security system with obvious signs and decals. Burglars like easy targets, and many times will just continue to the next house when they see an Alarm Engineering sign. In addition, when burglars see a neighborhood with many security system signs, they will often keep moving to an easier target. That means referring Alarm Engineering to your neighbors keeps you and them safer, plus you’ll save!
Your insurance company knows that you are less likely to experience a break-in with an Alarm Engineering home security system and less likely to submit a claim, so you may qualify for discounts.

Check out what some of your Berlin neighbors are saying about Doug and the Alarm Engineering team:
“Excellent customer service. Our new service was having false alarms starting on a Saturday night and they have an on call tech (Deb) and she was excellent at talking me through it and then came out on a Sunday to replace a component with a better alternative. Very easy company to work with.” – Carrie in Berlin, MD
“Keep doing what you are doing, because you are doing it right!!! Thank you for everything.” – Craig in Berlin, MD
“Very refreshing to have a technician that takes pride in his profession. Really enjoyed his pleasant attitude. Thanks again.” – Dennis in Berlin, MD
“We recently eliminated our home phone line and had an upgrade done on our alarm system. I want to comment on how well Doug Brown handled the job & made it an easy transition for us. Our installer Dan (Adkins) was one of the most talented people I have had work in our home in recent years. He was careful, the equipment was mounted neatly & the job was left as clean as he found it. He also did a great job of explaining how to use the new features. Thanks, Steve.” – Steve in Berlin, MD
