"Why is Potomac, Maryland, Considered an Affluent Town?"

The land that makes up Potomac, Maryland, was primarily a farming community from its early settlement period in the 1700s all the way up to the 1930s. That's when an enterprising group of men went looking for a place to ride to the hunt a la the landed English gentry. Although they weren't the first group of wealthy individuals to populate the area. That honor belongs to Lyman Kendall who built his Florentine-style mansion, Kentsdale, on top of a hill. It was ostentatious, over-the-top, and the site of scandal. More from this guide...

Temperatures keep climbing until they get to an average high of 87 degrees around July 21. They don't go down a whole lot until the end of October and even then the averages are in the 60s and 50s. Temps reach a low of the low 40s around the end of January, then start their climb back up between February and May.

There's a strong chance of rain between April and the third week of August with an average daily chance of 30 percent and higher. The air dries out towards the end of August and the chance of precipitation goes down to an average daily of 20 percent. Snow is known to fall in the area and the most snow lands between the middle of January and the middle of February. However, it's not going to stick around long with daily highs above freezing.

What's There to Do in Potomac, Maryland?

Omsted Island, named after landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, is located near Great Falls and situated within the C&O Canal National Historical Park. The island is devoted to the preservation of rare, threatened, and endangered plant species. It's also home to native birds and the occasional lizard. What makes the island unique is the fact that regular flooding changes the landscape on a regular basis. Floods wipe out existing plants and a new species grows in that location until the next flood wipes them out.

The Glenstone Museum is a privately owned museum that focuses on contemporary art. It has a rule that all works of art date to the post-WWII period and have already been exhibited for 15 years in other museums or galleries. The contemporary architecture of the buildings flow with the natural landscape that surrounds the buildings. In fact, the museum is also a conservation center that focuses on planting native and regional species. The lily pond and large pond also act as rainwater traps that feed reservoirs used to irrigate the grounds when necessary.

Don't miss the Great Falls Tavern Visitor Center to learn more about the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal. The C&O was once a canal for barges carrying goods from one end of the canal system to the other. Walk along the tow path to see where the men and mules pulled the barges along, and check out the locks that act as watery elevators to move barges from one level to the next.
