‘Dairy Industry in the Bethesda Area in the First Half of the 20th Century’ Will Be Focus of Montgomery History Virtual Presentation on Tuesday, April 26
“The Dairy Industry in the Bethesda Area in the First Half of the 20th Century”—and before the building of the Beltway—will be the focus of a virtual presentation of Montgomery History at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 26. The presentation was developed in cooperation with the Bethesda Historical Society to commemorate the 150th Anniversary of Bethesda.
Development Bethesda, Chevy Chase and Silver Spring gradually made land valuable and led to the demise of dairy farms and creameries in the southern part of Montgomery County by the 1940s.
In the presentation, the early Bethesda area dairy farms and creameries will be identified and located on a map. Some will be discussed in detail.
