A Little History:

Initially, Chevy Chase was a unincorporated farmland before 1890, during the development of a residentialstreetcar suburb for Washington, D.C.. (See Washington streetcars). The Chevy Chase Land Company was founded in 1890 covering over 1,700 acres of land (present-day Connecticut Avenue from Florida Avenue north to Jones Bridge Road.) The name “Chevy Chase” can be traced to the larger tract of land called “Cheivy Chace” that was patented to Colonel Joseph Belt from Lord Baltimore on July 10, 1725. Historically, it is associated to a 1388 battle between Lord Percy of England and Earl Douglas of Scotland, which was portrayed in a ballad entitled “The Ballad of Chevy Chase“. At issue in this “chevauchée” (a French word describing a border raid) were hunting grounds or a “chace” in the Cheviot Hills of Northumberland and Otterburn.
