One of the oldest communities in the area, Rockville was once known as Hungerford’s Tavern—named after one of American’s first real taverns. This local beer and food joint hosted such luminaries of the day as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Franklin Pierce. The town became the country seat in 1776 and was incorporated as Rockville in 1801, due to the nearby Rock Creek.
The growing town continued to expand, all the way through the twentieth century. This means homes for sale ranging from charming antiques to new construction. Among current development projects is Rockville Town Square—a 12.5-acre transit-oriented redevelopment that is replacing a former shopping mall with new restaurant, retail and residential components.
