Tales of Takoma

Life in 1890

On May 5, this year’s House and Garden Tour will turn back the clock to May 5, 1890. A construction flurry since 1883 has seen the rise of 37 houses west of Carroll and 32 to the east, sheltering 200 residents. Gardens are beginning to bloom. A four-room school already stands on Tulip Avenue around the corner from the new Union Chapel on Maple Avenue. And the State of Maryland just approved our incorporation as Takoma Park.

May 5 marks the town’s first Election Day when male residents cast their ballots for Mayor and Council. B.F. Gilbert heads one slate, challenged by Rev. Chauncey Remington and The People’s Ticket.

By 1893 Union Chapel gives way to the Presbyterian Church, which carried on the tradition of serving as the community gathering space.
