History & History Related Items

Waldorf was settled before 1900 and was called Beantown at the start. The name of Waldorf is either from the town of Walldorf, Germany or after a 12th centurn religious sect, the Waldenses. At first all that was here was a crossroads and a train station, but tobacco production near here helped the town to grow. From 1949 until 1968, gambling was legal in Charles County and the community offered slot machines to draw in players. In 1970, a new planned development, St. Charles, was built nearby fueling more growth. Today Waldorf has been mostly engulfed by St. Charles.
