History & History Related Items

Like many other communities in the county, North Bethesda grew up along the Seneca Trail which later became the Georgetown-Frederick Road. The road opened in 1828. As train and trolley tracks were laid over the years, developments grew up around each stop on the lines. The area remained largely undeveloped even in the early 1900ís. Once the automobile industry was more firmly established the area started to become a suburb of Washington, D.C. with the resident driving into D.C. each day for work. It borders Rockville and remains closely tied to that community. It continues to be a largely commuter/bedroom community of the larger cities surrounding it.
