Located in a suburban residential community in central Prince George's County, Maryland, approximately eight miles northeast of Washington, DC. New Carrollton boasts a prime metropolitan location near the District of Columbia, Baltimore, and Annapolis. The City has convenient access to highways, including the Capital Beltway (Interstate 95), the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, and John Hanson Highway (U.S. Route 50).

The New Carrollton station is the first Amtrak station on the Northeast Corridor that is north of Washington Union Station . It is also served by the Penn Line of the MARC commuter rail service. The adjacent New Carrollton station of the Washington Metro is the eastern terminus of the Orange Line.

New Carrollton is built on the former estate of a horse racing figure, Edward L. Mahoney. After Mahoney's death in 1957, the land was acquired by developer Albert W. Turner, who sought to create a planned suburb. He had received a charter for a City of Carrollton from the Maryland General Assembly 4 years earlier, on April 11, 1953. Carrollton was named after early Maryland settler Charles Carroll of Carrollton, a delegate to the Continental Congress and signer of the Declaration of Independence. As two other Maryland communities were also named Carrollton, a voter referendum on May 2, 1966, approved the renaming of the community to New Carrollton.
