Historic Realty Park (M-21-202)

(Not A designated historic district with restrictions) Realty Park is a small early to mid-20th century residential community located in the City of Gaithersburg. The area is bounded by Frederick Road on the west and is comprised of parcels on both the north and south sides of Maryland and Montgomery avenues, and parcels facing the east and west sides of Highland and Oak avenues. It also includes five parcels facing the west side of Russell Avenue that were part of W. Magruder’s Subdivision. All structures within the area are in residential use with the exception of the properties abutting North Frederick Avenue which are in commercial use.

Realty Park was platted in May 1920 on 26 acres of land that Charles Herman Rabbitt sold to the Gaithersburg Realty Company on April 23, 1920. The neighborhood plan consists of two major east-west roads, Maryland and Montgomery avenues, and several smaller streets, Central, Highland, Oak and Prospect avenues. Central Avenue is now just a grassy path, not a paved road. This layout is consistent with the earlier Brookes, Russell and Walker neighborhood to the south. Because the five structures on Russell Avenue that were part of W. Magruder’s Subdivision are of a similar style and era to those in Realty Park, they are included as part of the Realty Park Historic District.

The Realty Park Historic District is comprised of 71 properties. Of the 71 properties, 57 contribute to the district and 14 do not contribute. Structures in Realty Park are smaller in scale when compared to those in Brookes, Russell, and Walker to the south. They are typically frame and two stories tall. The structures represent a wide variety of early to mid-20th century building types and styles including bungalows, Cape Cods, Cotswold cottages and small, frame Colonial Revival buildings. The existence of structures with attached garages on the lower level, particularly along Montgomery Avenue, shows the increasing importance of the automobile to community residents. The streets are lined with mature trees. Lots are a consistent size and houses are set back a consistent distance (~20 feet) from the road.
