Potomac MD Homes For Sale
As one might imagine, the community of Potomac in Montgomery County, Maryland, lies nestled against the banks of the well-known river. With over 45,000 residents, it's one of the larger towns in the area geographically speaking, covering 26 square-miles. The land was originally inhabited by the Canaze Indian Nation who built the Tehogee Indian Trail in 1716 where River Road currently runs. The land had been granted to early settlers a couple years earlier, setting into motion an era of both conflict and cooperation.
