Map of Rockville in 1879

We are very much obsessed with old maps. I think it’s safe to say that the bulk of you are as well. And here is another one to obsess over, especially for the GoDCers out in Montgomery County (do you know where the county got its name?).

This is a map of Rockville in 1879. Pretty sweet.
