Rockville Through the Years

Rockville was originally formed as "Sinequa Trail" by indigenous peoples, but was incorporated as Rockville in 1860. Rockville was already a bustling center of commerce when the Baltimore and Ohio railroad arrived in 1873. The rail provided service to Washington D.C. and contributed to the expansion of Rockville as a D.C. suburb—until it was replaced in the 1930s and 1940s by the automobile. In the 1970s the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) began work to extend the Washington Metro into Rockville. From Rockville, the MARC provides service to Union Station in Washington D.C.
