Bordered by I-66 and Old Dominion Drive to the south, Maywood counts Woodmont (to the north) and Cherrydale (to the southwest) as its closest neighbors. It is also quite close to Donaldson Run and Courthouse.

The neighborhood was first platted for residential development by Hugh Thrift between 1909 and 1913. It received a boost as a streetcar suburb with the arrival of the Washington and Old Dominion Car Line in 1912. Back in those days, Maywood was still largely a horse and buggy neighborhood. There was an ice house, a fire substation with a Model T fire truck, and coal was delivered by wagon. During the long, hot summers, kids could walk to the Potomac River to go swimming.

Home construction continued over the ensuing decades, and architectural styles reflect a variety of what was popular at the time. Queen Anne as well as tall and narrow Victorians, plus Colonial Foursquare were among the earliest houses. Those were followed Craftsman and Colonial Revival, with Cape Cods and English Tudor properties first showing up during the 1930s. According to the county’s project and planning website, a hybrid also came into existence during this period—a blend of Cape Cod and Colonial Revival with one-and-a-half stories, side-gable and front bays.

About 300 of the neighborhood’s 400 properties belong to the above-mentioned styles. The mid-century era also brought some interesting contemporary forms. Also, teardowns resulted in new custom homes during the 1970s and 1980s. But demolition of any other historic homes has been strongly discouraged since 1990, thanks to county preservationists.

Maywood encompasses about 73 acres, including Thrifton Hills Park (named for the original developer) along the southeastern portion. There’s also the Maywood Mini Park at 22nd Street—a fenced-in place with a play structure that is great for toddlers. The neighborhood is also close to the Shops at Lee Heights with its fun indie businesses and restaurants.

Homes for sale in Maywood typically start around a million dollars, and there don’t tend to be a lot of active listings. But if you’re craving a neighborhood with true historic pride and character, and a strong sense of local community, this place is well worth the time and effort.
