History of Derwood

Derwood is an unincorporated area in east-central Montgomery County, Maryland. The census-designated place (CDP) lies north of Rockville, northwest of the greater Silver Spring area, southwest of Olney and southeast of Gaithersburg. It was originally named "Deer Park" and then "Deer Wood" before becoming Derwood. The area includes the following neighborhoods:

  • Derwood Heights and Derwood Station
  • Mill Creek Towne
  • Needwood Estates
  • Muncaster Manor and Muncaster View
  • Hollybrooke
  • Granby Woods
  • Park Overlook
  • Preserve at Rock Creek
  • Redland Crossing and Redland Station
  • Candlewood Park
  • Cashell Estates
  • Avery Forest, Avery Lodge and Avery Village
  • Bowie Mill Estates and Bowie Mill Park
  • Winters Run
  • Rolling Knolls
  • Emory Grove
  • Shady Grove Crossing

Derwood was first recognized as a train stop on the B&O Railroad in the 1880s. From 1886 through 1889, a larger railroad station was built in the area. A small community began developing around the station in the early 1900s. However, on January 7, 1954, the Derwood railroad station and Schwartz Mill caught on fire and were destroyed. The station was never rebuilt. In 1965, the 75-acre man-made Lake Needwood reservoir was created by impounding Rock Creek with the Lake Needwood Dam. In 1974, the Derwood post office was relocated to the Redland Shopping Center. Keeping the name "Derwood Branch," it designated the 20855 zip code area as Derwood. This increased the size of Derwood greatly. In 1984, the establishment of the Shady Grove Metro station increased the community's population. Derwood currently houses the headquarters of Goodwill Industries International Inc.
