History

The Town of Chevy Chase began its history in the 1890s when the Chevy Chase Land Company was formed by two gentlemen, Francis G. Newlands and William M. Stewart. The founders of the development company had previously made their fortunes by mining gold and silver in the western United States.

The company began by purchasing thousands of acres of land just north of the nation's capital. Once the land was secured, the company undertook a massive development project and created the infrastructure for what was to become Chevy Chase.

The name of the Town can be traced back to a larger tract called Chevy Chase that was given to Colonel Joseph Belt from Lord Baltimore in 1725.

Despite early headway with the development of the land, Chevy Chase remained largely unoccupied until after World War I, when the development of the automobile made life in the suburbs a more viable option.

In 1918, Chevy Chase was incorporated as a municipality. The next decade marked a period of growth for the town. During the roaring 20s, the population of Chevy Chase increased, the lots embellished, and the infrastructure was improved.

Today, much of the town remains the same as it was in its heyday. Chevy Chase offers residents in the Washington D.C. area an unmatched quality of life. The town's many green spaces, ample recreation, and small-town feel offer residents a quiet life with the convenient access to a larger metropolitan area.
