MD - Gaithersburg

Gaithersburg, Maryland

History

Gaithersburg began in 1765 as a small agricultural settlement known as Log Town. In 1850, the post office was named “Forest Oak.” The town officially became “Gaithersburg” when it was incorporated on April 5, 1878.

Gaithersburg has undergone significant changes in recent years. The City is now an urban area and a suburb of Washington, D.C. It has become a major regional location for high-technology companies while commercial agriculture is close to non-existent. The rolling fields of wheat are now roads, housing developments and commercial enterprises, but at the same time a number of historic communities and traditions have been preserved. In the 21st century Gaithersburg continues to grow while retaining many of the qualities of a small town that cherishes its rich, diverse heritage.

Demographics
