History & History Related Items

Section 5 of the Village of Chevy Chase was established in 1922 and later became an incorporation entity on 25 June 1982. There are 225 private homes and a restaurant as of January 2009.

The Chevy Chase Land Company was formed by Senator Francis Newlands in the 1890's to develop a "streetcar" suburb just outside of the District of Columbia. The Land Company acquired several thousand acres and proceeded to develop the property in sections. The areas became known by the development "section" number and the various sections became municipalities over a number of years. The official titles are:
Village of Chevy Chase sections 1 and 2
Section 3 of the Village of Chevy Chase
Town of Chevy Chase sections 4 and 7
Section 5 of the Village of Chevy Chase
Martin's Additions
Friendship Heights
Chevy Chase Hamlet a special taxing district, but not a municipality
Section 6 is an unincorporated area of Montgomery County.
There is also a village called North Chevy Chase, but it is not a "real" Chevy Chase since it was not part of the Land Company's original holdings. Chevy Chase View is a named area, not a village. All of these Chevy Chases collectively have a population of about 7 thousand.

The Village and the Town of Chevy Chase are very expensive places to buy a house; they, especially the Village, have many houses which are very grand mansions. The other Chevy Chases are not as splendid, but are attractive older suburbs.
