DescriptionRockville traces its history to 1776, when irate citizens vowed to cut off all trade with England until the tea tax was lifted. A prosperous Washington suburb, Rockville's pockets of Victorian architecture, brick sidewalks and large trees help preserve some of the city's old essence amid the prevailing suburban sprawl.
The Glenview Mansion Art Gallery, 603 Edmonston Dr., offers free art exhibitions that change monthly; phone (240) 314-8660. The graves of F. Scott Fitzgerald, his wife and his daughter are in the cemetery of the 1817 St. Mary's Catholic Church, in one of Rockville's seven historic districts.
