Oddly enough, there is also a separate community within Friendship Village known as the Village of Friendship Heights. This is very confusing!
The Maryland version of Friendship Heights owes its beginnings to a “friendship grant” given to colonists in 1725. Naturally, the same holds true for its DC sibling. Back in the day, the area was known for tobacco plantations. And then around 1900, a streetcar line from Georgetown arrived, at which point the community began to develop further.
But our Maryland version was slower to develop—a few houses here and there, and then the above-mentioned forming of the Village of Friendship Heights subset, which was founded in 1914. For more information about Friendship Heights, MD homes for sale, contact us today!
