Named for mica infused sparkling stream outside the Washington DC line, Silver Spring, Maryland was founded by a newspaper man and his daughter in 1840. Looking to escape the warm DC summers Silver Spring, become one of the first suburban towns for the elite in Maryland showcasing land and quiet for those who could afford its allure. From then and all the way though the early part of the 20th century, it remained a respite for those seeking that lifestyle.
However, in the mid 20th century, shoppers swooned, when the Hecht Company opened its first department store at the intersection of Fenton Street and Ellsworth Drive. And as an anchor, other businesses began calling Silver Spring home. Meanwhile Montgomery Blair High school obtained high academic achievement, and the population blossomed. But by the dawn of the 1970’s Silver Spring Faded from glory with many businesses fleeing the downtown area leaving so many of the landmark buildings abandon.
Yet, in 1999, Montgomery county leaders broke ground for a redeveloping campaign that envisioned pedestrian walkways bringing back major businesses into the downtown streets, including entertainment focused venues and restaurants, making Silver Spring a destination spot for all. By the 2000’s Silver Spring was reborn with multi use retail, commercial, and residential real estate revitalizing in ways many couldn’t imagine. From the high rise condominium within walking distance to the metro’s red line to the decades old single family homes lining tree covered streets, Silver Spring has just about everything a resident’s taste could want.
Today, Silver Spring represents a town reborn, and is among the most venerated of Montgomery County Towns. Showing all, that without doubt, second acts do indeed exist.
