Living in Suitland, MD

Suitland was named for Col. Samuel Taylor Suit, a businessman who owned a farm in the area. Suit's son sold off most of the farmland in 1892 and opened some businesses that drew more people to the area. A store, bar and bowling alley helped the community begin to grow, and these businesses convinced more residents to build stores, churches and homes.

The area underwent numerous changes over the years, and the federal government bought many properties in the town. People who worked in Washington, D.C., migrated to Suitland because of its ideal location close to the city. Homes and apartment buildings were constructed to accommodate all the new residents.

During the 1940s, the Suitland Parkway was opened in order to connect the Navy's Anacostia Air Station and the Army's Bolling Field to Camp Springs Army Airfield, creating a major military transportation route in Suitland.

Today, Suitland is home to nearly 26,000 residents. This historic town appeals to a diverse range of people, who choose to live in Suitland for its close proximity to business centers and schools.
