Chevy Chase

Chevy Chase, developed by the Chevy Chase Land Company in 1890, was built on Connecticut Avenue, which the Land Company extended.  One of the area’s first fully planned communities, Chevy Chase was designed by well-known planners and architects.  It was also easily accessible by a trolley line which ended at Chevy Chase Lake, both the community’s power plant as well as an amusement park.
