WELCOME TO POOLESVILLE MARYLAND
Poolesville is a town of unique charm, a special place strategically located at a crossroads, not only of geography, but also where the past intersects the present, agriculture connects with commerce, and rural beauty coexists with suburban convenience.
We are known for great schools, safe neighborhoods, and a variety of recreational activities.
The Town of Poolesville was incorporated in 1867. Located in the northwestern part of Montgomery County, Poolesville is 33 miles from Washington, D.C., it is also conveniently located to Frederick, Rockville and Gaithersburg, Maryland as well as Leesburg, Virginia.
Today, Poolesville still stands at a crossroads, where the forces of its history and its future converge. Seventeenth and eighteenth century structures, including Poole's log cabin, stand alongside new buildings, and streets and parks are named after Poolesville's founding citizens. In recognition of its historic significance, the Poolesville Historic District was listed in the National Register of Historic places in 1974 and designated by Maryland in the Montgomery County Certified Heritage Area. In 1999, Poolesville was selected as one of the Washingtonian Magazine's 10 Best Small Towns in the region. Against a background of rural and natural beauty, Poolesville remains, as it has since its early days, a community that honors its origins, a commercial center for western Montgomery County, and an outstanding place in which to live.
