History & History Related Items

Mount Rainier history:

When Washington, D.C. began to expand and grow in the late 1800ís and early 1900ís, the areas surrounding the capital also began to grow. Many wanted to live away from the city, but not too far. Due to the expansion and these desires, Mount Rainier was born. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad added more lines and the community began to develop alone this line. When the Clemson farm was sold and developed, the surveyors, from the northwestern U.S. state of Washington, began to give street names from their home state, including naming the town Mount Rainier after the famous mountain peak in Washington State. In 1897, a streetcar line going to Mount Rainier from Washington, D.C. also brought new community members and early commuters. Still, the area remained fairly rural with just about 50 people around the turn of the 20th century. As the years went by, more people came and now some businesses were also opening, mostly around the station which rapidly became known as downtown. The 1,242 early residents desired to incorporate and their wishes became reality on 14 April 1910.
