Bethesda, Maryland

Bethesda is located in the southern part of Montgomery County, Maryland, just northwest of the United States capital of Washington, D.C. Bethesda’s name comes from a local church, the Bethesda Meeting House built in 1820 and rebuilt in 1849, which in turn took its name from Jerusalem’s Pool of Bethesda. The National Institutes of Health main campus and the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center are in Bethesda, as are numerous corporate and government headquarters. Bethesda is one of the most affluent and highly educated communities in the U.S. According to the U.S. Census Bureau in 2013, the community had a population of 63,374. Bethesda is positioned along a major thoroughfare that was originally the route of an ancient Native American trail. Most of the original settlers in Bethesda were tenant farmers who paid their rent in tobacco. Throughout most of the 19th century, Bethesda never grew beyond a small crossroads village, composed of a post office, a blacksmith shop, a church and a school, and a few houses and stores. It was the installation of a streetcar lie in 1890 that allowed Bethesda to begin to gain a larger population. Bethesda is also home to a federally funded and operated health science university, the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU). The primary mission of USU is to prepare graduates for service in the Medical Corps of the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, and Public Health Service. The university consists of the F. Edward Hebert School of Medicine, a medical school, and the Graduate School of Nursing, a nursing school.
