History of Potomac, MD
In the late 1920's, horse lovers began streaming to Potomac when Washington's fox hunters were looking for an escape from their growing city in order to pursue their sport. The "Potomac Hunt" was established in the early 1940's, and the Potomac Polo Club began in 1957 and is still active today. This summer escape for Washington's elite developed into a year round home for them. The settlement of Potomac has brought commerce, recreation, schools, jobs, and a thriving community. For horse lovers, Potomac is still an ideal place to live - horses have been a tradition in this area since the early 1900's. Potomac has grown rapidly over the last ten years, with much of the area's industry high-tech or government-related. Still, many large tracts of land are intact.
