Somerset Elementary School MontgomerySomerset is a small town of Montgomery County in Maryland next to the Washington D.C. border. It should not be mistaken for Somerset County (Maryland), which is 150 miles away from this locality.

In case you decide to visit Somerset, you will surely need a ride. Call to arrange for a pick-up from the airport with Affinity Airport Sedan for a more enjoyable experience.

About Somerset

The beginnings of Somerset go back to 1890, when a group of scientists acquired 50 acres of tobacco farmland from the government to be developed as a residential community. This parcel of land was formerly part of the Friendship Tract, a grant of 3,000 acres to colonists in early Maryland. Somerset was one of the streets named after counties in England. The others are Cumberland, Dorset, Essex, Surrey, and Warwick. The very first resident of Somerset in 1893 was Dr. Charles Crampton, and by 1905, there were already 35 houses in that community. The first Town Council was organized in May 7, 1906, with Dr. Crampton as the first mayor.

According to town officials and local historians, women have been active in the cultural development of Somerset and Montgomery County as a whole. In 1902, women residents of this town formed a Wednesday Club to discuss and recommend solutions primarily on child labor issues, rights of suffrage, the war in Europe, and other current concerns. In 1916, the Wednesday Club was transformed into the Women’s Club of Somerset and ultimately merged with the Montgomery County Federation of Women’s Clubs.

Coping with Problems

Somerset was always hailed as an area of tranquility and refinement. However, it was confronted with problems such as insufficient water drain systems, crude sewage disposal methods, and an absence of local fire protection and schools. These issues urged local citizens to formally request the State of Maryland for incorporation into a township so taxes could be levied for basic services. The State issued Somerset’s charter in 1906, forming the community of Somerset Heights and surrounding areas into a town. Somerset has a mayor-council form of government. It has stood up to challenges and development has been rapid. You can now find tennis and basketball courts, a batting area, and a community swimming pool as well as more residential units.

If your travels bring you to Somerset or any other town in the D.C. area, keep in mind Affinity Airport Sedan. We will pick you up on time and get you to your destination safely.

White FerryDickerson is located along Maryland Route 28, flanked by Sugarloaf Mountain and the Potomac River. It was formally instituted in 1871 and named after the town’s first postmaster, William H. Dickerson. However, most of the land where the town lies was owned by Nathan Hempstone; 97 acres were given as a grant to Arthur Nelson in 1739.

If you plan to travel to Dickerson from the airport, the best option is to call Affinity Airport Sedan. Our efficient and trustworthy chauffeurs will be very happy to give you a ride.

Dickerson in the Past

The town was nothing but a few bungalows, a pair of roads, and one store before the Civil War. However, the population started to increase after 1865, when the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company was looking for a route to accommodate its Metropolitan Branch. Commuters were yearning for a means of traveling west toward D.C. and other areas without the need to pass by Baltimore. Construction of a route that passed through Dickerson up to Point of Rocks in Maryland was completed in 1871. The whole line was opened for public use in 1873.

The famous Dickerson Store was put up as a supply depot only for workers building the railroad in 1870, but it also continued to serve local residents and farmers as a general store. In 1891, a post office was added to the retail outlet. It was moved three times: first in 1890 to allow more space for the train station, second in 1910 to make way for road widening, and again in 1928 when a second track was added to the railroad. You can find Dickerson Market at Dickerson Road. It was built in 1946 as Dronenburg’s Store. The post office was relocated for a fourth time from the Dickerson Store to Dickerson Market in 1960.

Places to Visit

The historic White’s Ferry is a historic ferry that offered transport services on the Potomac River between Maryland and Virginia; it is a must-see for visitors. It operated during the latter part of the 18th century. There is a store and grill open during the spring and summer seasons to sell snacks, hot and cold food, and beverages. Canoes, picnic tables, and a pavilion are rented out for all types of family gatherings at very inexpensive rates. Dickerson is also close to Sugarloaf Mountain, a park and favorite destination of tourists. This recreational area was declared a National Natural Landmark in 1969. Enjoy your trip to Dickerson and for a comfortable ride, make sure to call Affinity!

Brief History

A map of Maryland that dates back to the late 18th century shows a mill owned by a Quaker minister and political activist named Evan Thomas. Francis Valdenar bought the frame saw and grist mill in 1833. Then in 1857, Valdenar sold this mill to George Kemp who renamed it Kemp Mill. The family operated the mill until 1905 and unfortunately in 1919, the mill burned down. The Maryland National Park and Planning Commission acquired the site in 1957.

Kemp Mill Today

There are numerous Jewish synagogues as well as Jewish and Catholic parochial schools in this community. Kemp Mill Recreation Center was constructed and now houses basketball and tennis courts, a baseball field and playground. A spacious meeting place was also constructed for residents. Sligo Creek emerges from Kemp Mill and has become the most developed sub-watershed of the Anacostia River. The Sligo Creek Trail for hikers and bikers connects Kemp Mill to downtown Wheaton and links up with the tributary trail system in Anacostia. We highly recommend this riding adventure.

Kemp Mill Shopping Center is the neighborhood’s trade nucleus. This quaint neighborhood mall is complete with two restaurants; two banks; grocery outlet, dry cleaner, barber shop, pharmacy, nail and hair salon, mini gymnasium, and martial arts training facility. Assorted pastry shops and doctors’ clinics also occupy the complex. However, the famous anchor store for decades, Giant Food Grocery, closed down on September of 2007. A small local chain (Magruder’s) refurbished the facility and opened two months later. It did not last long and ceased operations in July of 2012. Businessman Shalom Kosher, who owns a Kosher store in Wheaton, acquired Magruder’s and opened a second retail shop on Lamberton Drive the same year.
