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.

    The best part about this map is the fact that, despite Rockville’s best efforts in the 60s and 70s to wipe the slate clean through Urban Renewal projects, many of these buildings are still here!
