Oldtown was initially called "Shawanese Old Town". It was the site of a Shawnee Amerindian village which eventually was abandoned. The prefix in the name was later dropped and simply became known as "Oldtown". In 1741, Colonel Thomas Cresap settled Oldtown. He was a pathfinder, patriot and frontiersman of what was then the wilderness. Cresap entertained George Washington when he was in Oldtown as a surveyor apprentice. Washington continued to visit Oldtown and Thomas Cresap throughout his life.

Thomas Cresap was active in fur trading, the French & Indian War, and was famous for his dispute against Pennsylvania over the 40th Parallel which was eventually surveyed by Mason and Dixon. Michael, the youngest son of Thomas, was born in Oldtown and was famous for his longrifle skills, in addition for being the Captain of the first southern militia to answer George Washington's call to arms in Cambridge.
