Chevy Chase City Preview
If you're moving to Chevy Chase, Maryland, you'll be right in the middle of all the action contained within the Washington-Baltimore metro area. Chevy Chase was both one of the first planned communities in America as well as the site of a former trolley park.
In 1890, a new kind of neighborhood began to take shape on former farmland at the edge of Washington, D.C. The modern planned community of Chevy Chase, Maryland was designed to take advantage of a revolutionary new mode of rapid transit: the streetcar.
You're probably familiar with the concept of a planned community. But a “trolley park”? A trolley park was an early form of amusement park built at the end of a streetcar line. These parks were often linked – as it was in Chevy Chase - with the development of streetcar suburbs at the turn of the twentieth century. The trolley parks served as an attraction at “the end of the line.” Yet, the streetcar lines and the trolly parks really had just one goal: Sell real estate lots.
As the Washington, D.C. area grew in importance and population, people started looking for less crowded places to live. The park and streetcar line brought potential buyers of house lots to a new suburban development, and at the same time, built ridership on the streetcar line in the evenings and on the weekends (a double win for the developers).
Today, Chevy Chase is the name of both a town and an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) in Montgomery County, Maryland. The Chevy Chase Land Company took the name "Chevy Chase" from a 200-plus acre tract of land that the Land Company purchased to include in its planned street car suburb.
While the area is primarily a residential suburb, Chevy Chase is home to the National 4-H Center. 4-H in the United States is a youth organization. Most American (city populations) think the 4H as a private organization. But, it's not. It started out as a private initiative. No one individual is credited with originating the 4-H program because it grew organically from different roots in different places.
In 1901, A.B. Graham, a school principal in Ohio, began to promote vocational agriculture in rural schools in out-of-school "clubs". In 1902, Graham formed a club of boys and girls with officers, projects, meetings, and record requirements. He sought assistance of the Ohio Agricultural Experiment Station and Ohio State University. In 1918, first use of the term "4-H Club" in a federal document appeared in a bulletin written by Gertrude L. Warren.
Today, 4H is part of of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) administered by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture. The name represents four personal development areas of focus for the organization: head, heart, hands, and health (formerly “hustle”). The organization has been widely successful and has over 6.5 million members in the United States, from ages 5 to 21, in approximately 90,000 clubs. All coordinated in Chevy Chase. There are 4H associated programs now in over 80 countries.
Chevy Chase is also home to the National Science Bowl©. It's a high school and middle school academic competition, similar to Quiz Bowl, held in the United States. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Science Bowl® is a nationwide academic competition that tests students’ knowledge in all areas of science and mathematics.
The Department of Energy (DOE) created the National Science Bowl© in 1991 to encourage students to excel in mathematics and science and to pursue careers in these fields. More than 225,000 students have participated in the competition throughout its 23 year history, and it is one of the nation’s largest science competitions.
Although Chevy Chase began as a commercial venture solely to sell home lots, it has grown into a notable community that is well integrated into a larger metropolitan area. As noted, the tiny community of Chevy Chase, Maryland has achieved quite a record of notoriety as a beautiful residential area in which to live as well as for the institutions headquartered there that have had an impact worldwide.
