Germantown was originally founded by German settlers, who divided it into a downtown area and six smaller villages. Those villages were Kingsview, Churchhill, Gunner’s Lake, Middlebrook, Neelsville, and Clopper’s Mill. Although they are no longer distinct villages, they nonetheless remain prominent neighborhoods within the city of Germantown.
Germantown is the largest city in Montgomery County, and has a population of more than 90,000 people. It has never been formally incorporated and therefore does not have a mayor or town council. Instead, it is completed governed by Montgomery County. Even so, its lack of incorporation has not stopped new businesses from locating here. Currently, Germantown is home to Mid-Atlantic Federal Credit Union, Hughes Network, Earth Work Systems, and many other companies. The Department of Energy operates an administrative building in Germantown as well.
Many of the town’s residents & commuters access local shopping areas on foot. However, for those who travel to D.C. for business or pleasure, Germantown does provide easy access to Interstate 270, the Washington Metro’s red line, and the Maryland Area Regional Commuter Train.
