A History of Wheaton

Wheaton is an unincorporated community in Montgomery County that started out as a crossroads in the 1700s.  It became known as Mitchell’s Crossroads when Richard (Robert) T. Mitchell owned the tavern located at the northeast corner of Brookeville Turnpike (now Georgia Ave.) and Old Bladensburg Road (now University Blvd.) in the mid 1800s.  The tavern was used as a residence by the 1930's and was destroyed by fire in 1940.  Read more...
