Gaithersburg

Walker Avenue is the most cohesive street in Gaithersburg's historic district. Most of its houses were built between 1904 and 1930. The street is named after John Walker, whose farm became Walker Avenue when he decided to subdivide the front end in 1904. Walker was mayor of Gaithersburg from 1906 to 1908 and again from 1918 to 1924.
