History & History Related Items

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.
