Takoma Park History
Taking its name from an American Indian word for Mount Rainier (snow-covered mountain), Takoma Park, relative to the District of Columbia, is a suburban mountain with elevations up to 350 feet. This early, planned commuter suburb, originally traversing the northeast boundary of the District was purchased and developed by Benjamin Franklin Gilbert. Gilbert took up residence in a stately mansion on the Maryland side and worked tirelessly in expanding and improving his project and ensuring its prosperity with the construction of a resort hotel. In 1890 when Takoma Park was incorporated, he became the city’s first mayor.
