Chevy Chase View is a town located in Montgomery County, Maryland. Established as a Special Tax District in 1924, the town was formally incorporated in 1993.[4] The population was 920 at the 2010 census.

Geography[edit]

Chevy Chase View is located at 39°1'4" North, 77°4'50" West (39.017759, -77.080508)[5].

According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 0.28 square miles (0.73 km2), all of it land.[1]

The town lies between its parent town[clarification needed] of Kensington to the north and the Capital Beltway to the south. It is bisected by Connecticut Avenue. Chevy Chase View residents use Kensington as their mailing address. To the east lies greater Silver Spring, to the west both Garrett Park and Bethesda, and to the south lie the Beltway, Rock Creek Park, and the villages of Chevy Chase.

Except for the three houses of worship within its bounds, Chevy Chase View is entirely residential. Its streets are lined by hundred year old oaks, maples, and evergreens, plus decorative plantings which the town maintains in its right-of-ways. Housing turnover is slow. In recent years families with children have found its neighborhoods increasingly attractive, given the convenient public and private schools, playgrounds, and churches nearby.

History[edit]

The origins of the town date to 18 April 1910 when a "Plat of Chevy Chase View" was recorded.[4] Real estate developer Claude Livingstone designed the community the previous year and then conveyed it to Harry E. Smith and John L. Whitmore.[4] Livingstone's design, except for a few minor street changes, has remained largely the same since. In 1924, a special tax district was formed and, in 1993, the town was incorporated.[4]
