Did You Know?

  • Montgomery Square is made up of 436 homes.  Most were built by Kettler Brothers in the mid to late 1960’s.  Artery Homes built the homes on Atwell in the 1960’s and the upper end of Aqueduct was built by Winchester Homes and Schultz Construction in the 1980’s.
  • Montrose Road from Seven Locks Road to Falls Road didn’t exist when the neighborhood was built.  That land made up the proposed “Outer Beltway.”  If built, it would have crossed the Potomac above Great Falls and headed off toward Herndon and Reston.
  • In the 1980’s, the north side of Montgomery Square (just north of Montrose Road) was redistricted to feed into the Richard Montgomery High School Cluster.
  • Technically, the south side of Montgomery Square (just south of Montrose Road) is known by the state and county as the recorded subdivision of Regent Park, and the north side as the recorded subdivision of Montgomery Square.

More specifically

  • When Kettler Homes developed the neighborhood, they started on the south side with the bulk of the first homes being built in 1963 and started completing homes on the north side in 1965.  As stated above, Artery Homes built on Atwell in the late 60’s.  Then Winchester Homes and Schultz Construction built on the remaining land on Aqueduct west of Chilham during the  1983-1986 period.
  • Kettler branded the entire area as Montgomery Square and placed signage off of Seven Locks Road and Falls Road.  At that time, Montrose didn’t exist as that land had been set aside as the proposed outer circumferential beltway that was never built.
  • When the neighborhood was built the area was serviced by fewer schools and the area all fed into the Winston Churchill school district.  At some point, the north side of Montgomery Square was redistricted to Wootton high school and then in the 1980’s it was redistricted again to Richard Montgomery.
  • Montrose road divides Montgomery Square into two different school districts, which makes community building between the two sides more challenging.  However, thru the efforts of the Citizens Association, the community has maintained the identity of Montgomery Square.
