History & History Related Items

Chevy Chase Section Three history:

Section Three was originally chartered on April 4, 1916 but became an incorporated town on June 20, 1982. Prior to that, it was a special taxing district of Montgomery County. It takes the name from that original designation, as does Section 5 to the north.

The Chevy Chase Land Company was formed by Senator Francis Newlands in the 1890's to develop a "streetcar" suburb just outside of the District of Columbia. The Land Company acquired several thousand acres and proceeded to develop the property in sections. The areas became known by the development "section" number and the various sections became municipalities over a number of years. The official titles are:
Village of Chevy Chase (sections 1 and 2)
Section 3 of the Village of Chevy Chase
Town of Chevy Chase (sections 4 and 7)
Section 5 of the Village of Chevy Chase
Martin's Additions
Friendship Heights
Chevy Chase Hamlet (a special taxing district, but not a municipality)
Section 6 is an unincorporated area of Montgomery County.
There is also a village called North Chevy Chase, but it is not a "real" Chevy Chase since it was not part of the Land Company's original holdings. Chevy Chase View is a named area, not a village. All of these Chevy Chases collectively have a population of about 7 thousand.

The Village and the Town of Chevy Chase are very expensive places to buy a house; they, especially the Village, have many houses which are very grand mansions. The other Chevy Chases are not as splendid, but are attractive older suburbs.

Chevy Chase Section Three attractions:

Section Three of the Village of Chevy Chase has a population of 751 people, living in 278 single family houses. Our eastern boundary, Brookville Road, is the road Dolley Madison used to escape with the portrait of George Washington when the British burned the White House. That is our only claim to historic fame; George Washington did not sleep here. We also have one church (Chevy Chase United Methodist) and one embassy (Nigerian). Our village is mostly older houses built between 1910 and 1940, frame construction with a big front porch - popular because 1) we are a 30 minute commute from downtown Washington, and 2) because Maryland has better schools and lower taxes than Washington.
