Russo, Jean B. "The Early Towns of Montgomery County, 1747-1831." Montgomery County Story 34 (May 1991): 153-64.
Annotation / Notes: Montgomery County towns developed slow and were crossroad communities that served the County's agricultural community. The early towns were scattered across the county. They were not focussed on the southern boundary line as was common during the late twentieth century. Rockville, the county seat, remained in the shadow of the more cosmopolitan Georgetown into the mid-19th century.
