"Glymont (Indian Head, MD)

After the steamers slipped away from Washington, they began a zig-zag course along the Potomac. Sometimes there was no set route, but Alexandria came first, followed by a handful of “beach” spots. One of the more popular was Glymont on the Maryland side. Originally called Lower Wharf and Pie’s Landing, it got its name from the Fruit Growers Association of DC, who desired to make it better known as a place to purchase their fruits and flowers."

Glymont did not get its name from the Washington Fruit Growers Association. The name Glymont dates to the early 1700s. I love your site and find it very informative. I'm getting ready to launch my site called In Search of Glymont."
I have proper documentation. I hope the Maryland Historical Society and the Charles County Historical Society can correct their claims based on shoddy research.

Thanks Bob.

Look forward to your site!
