Tobytown is located in Potomac, five miles west of Potomac Village on River Road. Tobytown is an historic property. Originally purchased in 1875 by former slaves following the Civil War, many Tobytown residents to this day can trace their ancestry back to the original owners of the land, William Davis, Sr. and Ailsie Martin.
In March 1967, the Montgomery County Council declared Tobytown an urban renewal area, and allocated funding to upgrade the homes on site and construct new ones. By December 1972, 26 units had been built to house Tobytown residents. These units range in size from one to six bedrooms.
Today, many residents at Tobytown own their homes, and a few are rentals. HOC provides ongoing maintenance and resident services to families living in Tobytown.
