Whether residents are seeking a family-friendly place to raise their children, the ideal place to retire, or an interesting college town, there is a place for everyone in this thriving area.

Living in Hyattsville
Hyattsville's history goes far back to when Native American tribes resided in the area. Europeans began to move in during the early 1700s, purchasing land and building homes for their families. Many of these families began farming, as the soil in the area was well-suited to growing tobacco. After the civil war ended slave labor on these tobacco plantations, they were largely broken up, and Hyattsville became a commuter suburb because of its strategic location along a rail line. During the 1950s, the area began to shift into what it resembles today, a thriving, livable and historic suburb outside of Washington, D.C.
Data from the U.S. Census Bureau reveals that Hyattsville had 17,718 residents as of July 2011. This small population gives Hyattsville a special, small-town feel while not being too quiet.
