The Neighborhood:

It is located in the core of the Interstate 270 Technology Corridor as home to numerous software and biotechnology companies as well as several federal government institutions. Along with spacious family houses, condos, and apartments, the city also has several upscale regional shopping centers and is one of the major retail hubs in Montgomery County.

It is the county seat and is a major incorporated city of Montgomery County and forms part of the Baltimore–Washington metropolitan area. The 2010 censustabulated the Rockville’s population at 61,209, making it the third largest incorporated city in Maryland, behind Baltimore and Frederick.

A Little History:

Far, far back, the Rockville area served as a refuge for semi-nomadic Native Americans in the Piedmont region of North America as early as 8000 BC. The indigenous population carved a path on the high ground, known as Sinequa Trail, which is now downtown Rockville. Later, the Maryland Assembly set the standard of 20 feet for main thoroughfares and designated the Rock Creek Main Road or Great Road to be built to this standard. In the mid-18th century, Lawrence Owen opened a small inn on the road.

The first land patents in the Rockville area were obtained by Arthur Nelson between 1717 and 1735. Within three decades, the first permanent buildings in what would become the center of Rockville were established on this land. Still a part of Prince George’s Countyat this time, the growth of Daniel Dulaney’s Frederick Town prompted the separation of the western portion of the county, including Rockville, into Frederick County in 1748.
