Crown Farm Montgomery County Maryland/Gaithersburg
I am looking for any historical information on the Crown Farm which lies between Key West and Sam Eig Highway in Gaithersburg Maryland. There has been a commission for several years calling for the 182 acre lot to be annexed into homes and shops. I would like to find information on how long this property had been part of the Crown family and if they are of any relation to the King and Burdette families, also of Montgomery County. I have been to the property several times to document the site and hopefully preserve a memory of it for later generations. If anyone has interest in seeing the photos please leave a message. The property holds a special place in my heart as many of my own family's farms have fallen to the desire for more housing, roads, and shopping complexes. I look forward to receiving your comments.
