A special presentation and walking tour of Quality Hill, one of Rockville’s earliest communities. Concentrated along both sides of West Montgomery Avenue and Adams Street, Quality Hill traces its roots to the 1784 division of 45 acres of land into Rockville’s first streets, lots and blocks. This unique genealogical and historical presentation will trace families from the surrounding farmland as they move in to Rockville during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. These families, their homes, churches, and institutions left a lasting imprint on the city we know today. Join us to uncover the history of early Rockville through the eyes of the descendants of these first families. An hour-long, narrated walking tour will begin at the Red Brick Courthouse and showcase the historic family homes of Quality Hill as well as the churches and institutions that formed the complete community.
