Located in the heart of Prince George's County, the city of Temple Hills is one of the fastest-growing suburbs in the Washington, D.C., area. Conveniently located near the metro line that hugs the northern Virginia border, it makes sense that Temple Hill apartments for rent are such a hot commodity.

Living in Temple Hills, MD

Experts believe that Native Americans lived in the hills of southern Maryland more than 10,000 years ago. However, the first European settler to set foot in the areas around Temple Hills was in 1608 when the famous British explorer Captain John Smith made his way up the Potomac River. The area grew in the 1700s, but still remained largely agricultural because of the profitable tobacco trade in Maryland during the time.

Once steamboats criss-crossed the Potomac in the areas of Temple Hills, the city grew even more as the agriculture in the city diversified. However, tobacco continued to be grown here. Once the slaves were freed after the Civil War, the number of farms doubled when many recently freed residents began to move into the area to join the economic growth of the community. At the end of the 19th century, Washington, D.C, evolved into the political epicenter of the country and began to sprawl. After World War II, the suburban commuters by rail, car and trolley were all attracted to the close proximity of Temple Hills to the D.C. area.

Once a wilderness, today the city of Temple Hills is a diverse place where people of all backgrounds come to live. Even though the city may have a 400-year past, it is showing great promise for the future and is showing no signs of slowing down.
