What is now Takoma Park MD and Takoma DC began as a late 19th century railroad stop Victorian suburb known only as Takoma Park. Takoma Park includes areas of the District of Columbia and Montgomery County in Maryland. A portion of Takoma Park originally resided in Prince George's County in Maryland, but that area recently joined Montgomery County. This area includes Sligo Creek park where a resort once stood and the Washington Adventist Hospital. Takoma has a great diversity of homes and development from Victorian mansions to bungalows to brick ramblers.
