Fallsmead@50
Posted on January 17, 2018 8:58 AM by Melani Miller Harig
In 1929, Bethesda dairy farm owner Warwick Montgomery purchased a 101-acre parcel of land just off Falls Road. On it, he built a summer home which still stands today at 16 Pipestem Court. It is the oldest standing structure in Fallsmead.

Kettler Brothers, the developer of Fallsmead, chose the name Fallsmead in the late 1960s because of the neighborhood's location in a meadow near Falls Road. Fallsmead is a combination of "Falls Road" and "Meadow."

This year is Fallsmead's 50th Anniversary! As part of our celebration, we are sharing weekly tidbits about Fallsmead's history and important events in Fallsmead's past here, on Facebook, and on the neighborhood email list. This "Fallsmead@50" campaign will  be ongoing throughout the entire 2018 50th anniversary year.
