Derwood Real Estate Analysis

History

Derwood was first recognized in the 1880s as a train stop on the B&O Railroad at the present intersection of Indianola Drive and Maryland Route 355, in the what is now known as the Derwood Station neighborhood.

A second, larger railroad station was built there from 1886-1889. In the early 1900s, a small community with a store, homes, and a church was thriving in the area surrounding the station. However, because it was located between two larger cities, Derwood did not grow much. Its population leveled off with the invention of the automobile, since people did not need to use trains as much as they did before.

On January 7, 1954, Schwartz Mill caught fire and both it and the Derwood railroad station were destroyed. Derwood station was never rebuilt, since there were not enough passengers traveling through the area.

In 1965, the man-made Lake Needwood was created by impounding Rock Creek, and the lake has become a popular recreation area.

In 1974, the Derwood post office relocated to Redland Shopping Center. It kept the name “Derwood Branch,” designating the entire 20855 zip code area as Derwood, thus greatly increasing the size of Derwood from one neighborhood to the present size. This area began to expand in population, especially after the Shady Grove Metro station opened in 1984.
