Potomac Then And Now: Falls Road
Falls Road has seen much development over the last 100 years.
One of the most traveled road in Potomac has changed a lot since the early 1900s.
Falls Road runs through Potomac and connects the Great Falls of the Potomac River in the south to Rockville in the north. The picture, which was taken in February of 1910, shows part of the three-mile stretch of road built by Montgomery County in the summer of 1909.
Today, Falls Road is a hub of activity that still maintains the scenic farmland in some parts. The same stretch of land in the picture now intersects Bells Mill Road, has a traffic light and borders the Falls Road Golf Course.
Editor's note: Potomac Then and Now is a feature we hope to repeat. Send in your own pictures from the past so we can feature them.
