Gaithersburg was incorporated as a town in 1878 and became a city in 1968. Established in 1765 as a small agricultural village, Gaithersburg truly developed as a town toward the end of the 19th century. By the mid-nineteenth century, a railroad was introduced to the area, and new station created called Gaithersburg. It was after this that Gaithersburg took its official name. 

During the 1870s, the city built its first churches, schools, stores, and hotels to coincide with the popularity of the newly built railway. Although classified as a city in the 1960s, the area remained primarily a farming community up until the 1970s when increasing urban development began. With that, highway construction and residential development spread throughout the city and Gaithersburg began to leave its agriculture behind and become an urban paradise.
