The Wheaton Woods neighborhood. We just did a bit of research on the history, and there are links to Plat maps which should be of assistance to the historian.

Aspen Hill Maryland, is an aging suburb located north of Washington DC. It is about equally divided between Single Family Detached Residential houses and High Density Residential properties such as apartments or condominium units.

Renewal and Revitalization

Aspen Hill is becoming a Slumburbia. Current destabilization of the residential real-estate mortgage market is likely to accelerate this trend starting in early 2009. As of mid-2009, there are plans to begin infrastructure replacement and upgrades in the Wheaton Woods neighborhood south of Aspen Hill Road.


Significant repaving and road repair will occur along the entire length of Russett Road, starting on or about August 10, 2009.
