History

Road Name

Prior to the 1960s, Chesterfield Road within Manor Park was known "the Layhill Road", or simply as "Layhill Road", because of its destination of Layhill. This is a common source of confusion when researching land-use history in the area, as it is an easy thing to conflate the historic "Layhill Road" with the modern Layhill Road, which is Maryland Route 182.

Montgomery County Land Records has a deed at Liber 3203, folio 475, which confirms this.
