show info

This history of Capitol Heights is a relatively short one in comparison to others in neighboring counties. In the early 20th Century, Washington, D.C., was practically bursting with new settlements. In 1904, a crafty Baltimore resident named of Otway B. Zantzinger managed to acquire 400 acres just outside of the District of Columbia parceled them into 4,000 lots and sold them for anywhere from $20 and $150. Today, this small bedroom community enjoys access to eateries and shops, and is close to the home of the NFL’s Washington Redskins.
