More About Potomac, MD

The riverside shores and country streams of Potomac were once home to the Algonquin Indian tribe. Over time, colonial farmers moved in. But it wasn’t until the 1930s that the town began to shift in a residential manner. The Great Depression motivated farmers to sell their acreage at rock bottom prices. At the same time, wealthy Washington, DC equestrian enthusiasts were heading north on day trips, searching for areas suitable for English hunt riding that would be closer than traditional Virginia countryside locations. Developers soon began snatching up farms and building weekend retreats.

The population grew at an unhurried pace, from the hunt club set with their multi-acre estates to ordinary folks who welcomed the region’s post-war economic opportunities. Merchants opened up stores along River Road. The sheer geographic size of the town played nicely into the gradual residential expansion. Today, homeowners in Potomac continue to enjoy idyllic surroundings, including the many local parks, streams, and hiking trails, as well as places to hit the links such as the Falls Road Golf Course, TPC Potomac at Avenal Farm, and the Congressional Country Club. Location is also a plus, with Bethesda, Chevy Chase, and DC all nearby.
