Gaithersburg, sister to Germantown, is located in the heart of Montgomery County, some 12 miles from the northwestern border of Washington, D.C. The small settlement began at the crossroads of two ancient Indian trails. With the arrival of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in 1873, business and agricultural expansion made the Gaither settlement the commercial center for upper Montgomery County. It was incorporated as the town of Gaithersburg in 1878. Another major growth spurt came in the 1960's with the expansion of the Atomic Energy Commission headquarters and the National Institute for Standards and Technology.
