The area that would eventually become known as Gaithersburg was settled in 1765. Due to the agricultural production in the area, it was originally named ‰ÛÏLog Town". In the late 1700s, a man named Benjamin Gaither was granted the land. After he took up residence in the area, the name was officially changed to Gaithersburg. As more businesses and residents began moving into the small town, development bloomed, which eventually led to the construction of a B&O Railroad station. After seeing rapid growth in the late 1800s, the area was officially incorporated as the City of Gaithersburg.
