The latest edition of the County Cable Montgomery “Neighborhood Niches” provides a fresh look at the uniqueness of Wheaton and Somerset. The episode shares unconventional facts about the communities. Who knew Wheaton is home to the longest escalator in the United States and has a music store frequented by some of the world’s top artists, such as Stevie Wonder? And the Town of Somerset was founded in 1890 by five scientists and its 1,200 residents live in an area less than one-quarter mile wide.
In the show County Councilmember Nancy Navarro talks about the ongoing revitalization of Wheaton, a part of Council District 4, which she represents. Council Vice President Roger Berliner who represents District 1 talks about the character of Somerset.
