A Taste of Gaithersburg, Maryland

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT GAITHERSBURG?

  1. Gaithersburg is a city in Montgomery County, Maryland, United States. The city had a population of 59,933 at the 2010 census, making it the fourth largest incorporated city in the state, behind Baltimore, Frederick, and Rockville.

  2. Gaithersburg is divided into east and west sections, separated by Interstate 270. The eastern section of the city is older and is the original portion of the town before more recent growth. The west side of the city has many wealthier neighborhoods that were designed with smart growth techniques and embrace New Urbanism. These include the award-winning Kentlands community, the Lakelands community, and the Washingtonian Center(better known as The Rio), a popular shopping/business didtrict.

  3. Gaithersburg remained a predominantly rural farm town until the 1970s when more construction began. As the population grew, with homes spreading throughout the area, Gaithersburg began taking on a suburban and semi-urban feel, leaving its farming roots behind. During the last 20 years (19902010), it has become one of the most economically and ethnically diverse areas in the Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, DC-VA-MD-WV Metropolitan Statistical Area as well as the state of Maryland, with people from all walks of life calling Gaithersburg home. This can be seen in the local schools, with Gaithersburg High and Watkins Mill High having two of the most diverse populations in the Washington, D.C. area.

  4. The median income for a household in the city was $44,883 and the median income for a family was $56,422 as of a 2007 estimate.
