Easily accessible and with perfect walkability, the Historic District is as charming as it is culturally significant.

A great place to take in art, history and impressive architecture, this area boasts Civil War Trail interpretive signs and historic sites such as the Rockville B&O Railroad Station, the Red Brick Courthouse, the Beall Dawson House and the Stonestreet Museum of 19th Century Medicine.


This district runs through East and West Jefferson Street, parts of W. Montgomery Avenue, and contains portions of Forest Ave, Bealle Ave, Laird St., Thomas St. and Wall St. including Courthouse Square Park.

Getting Here

Located along the Route 28 corridor, the Historic District is sandwiched between the I-270 on-ramp and Downtown Rockville. The Rockville Red Line Metro Station is a brief five-minute drive away.
