History[edit]

In 1896, Harry M. Martin began buying land from the Chevy Chase Land Company and others and called his holdings "Martin's Additions to Chevy Chase".[7]

In 1916, the area was incorporated as the special tax district of Martin's First, Second, Third and Fourth Additions to the Village of Chevy Chase.[7]

In February 1985, the residents voted in a referendum on whether to incorporate as a town.[8] The vote was 198 to 15 in favor of incorporation.[8] Following approval of Montgomery County and the U.S. state of Maryland, the special tax district was incorporated as a municipality called the Village of Martin's Additions on March 19, 1985.[7] The first elected village council members were Michael E. Zielinski, Edward C. Holland, Lucy Foa, Karen McManus, and Paul S. Weller.[8]
