"A Town within a Forest" – the motto of Washington Grove, a tiny (pop. ~500) community near Railroad St next to Gaithersburg. It was originally a Methodist summer camp: No alcohol, No Dancing, No Gambling, No Theater! Now gravel paths run between rows of houses, radiating out from "The Sacred Circle" where services were held starting in 1873.
