Bethesda and Chevy Chase (Images of America)

Steve Roberts

When Washington became the nation's capital in 1790, the surrounding area to the northwest--the communities known today as Bethesda and Chevy Chase--was devoted almost entirely to agriculture. Many farms were worked by slaves, and one of them, Josiah Henson, escaped to Canada and wrote his life story in 1849. Harriet Beecher Stowe based her novel Uncle Tom's Cabin on Henson's life, and the model for that famous dwelling still stands in Bethesda today. The transition of the region to modern suburbia started with a simple innovation: the trolley. Once lines were built in the 1890s, government employees could live outside the city and commute to work. But, the neighboring towns developed along different lines. Bethesda became a bustling commercial center, while Chevy Chase was created as a planned community featuring elegant homes and country clubs. Even though both border the capital, this book demonstrates how each community has a vibrant heritage and distinct identity of its own.

Somerset: One Hundred Years a Town (MD) (Images of America)

Lesley Anne Simmons

Meet the people of the town of Somerset as they celebrate their centennial. This tree-lined oasis of 440 homes set between the high-rise commercial districts of Friendship Heights and Bethesda retains many small-town characteristics from its past. Vintage photographs bring to life the prominent scientists who purchased a parcel of land called Somerset Heights in 1890 and their efforts to build a town. The history of this trolley suburb is chronicled in images of the town’s mayors, beginning with agricultural scientist Dr. Charles A. Crampton in 1906; the townspeople and their families; and great American home architecture. Children who attend the Somerset Elementary School still sled and trick-or-treat along Cumberland Avenue as kids have done for a century. Many swim for the successful Dolphins swim team, now 25 years old.

Montgomery County (MD) (Images of America)

Nicknamed the “Gateway to the Nation’s Capital,” Montgomery County is home to a number of federal agencies and a highly educated and affluent population that has grown increasingly diverse in recent years. Established in 1776, Montgomery County now consists of urban centers like Bethesda and Silver Spring; suburban neighborhoods like Wheaton, Germantown, and Potomac; and scenic rolling farmland interspersed with historic villages, like Brookeville and Barnesville. An additional 50,000 acres of federal, state, and county parkland provide numerous recreational opportunities for its residents.
