Living in Prince George’s County, Maryland
Adjacent to our nation’s capitol and connected to it by public transportation, Prince George’s County is largely a suburban community with parks, recreational facilities, historic sites, and fabulous shopping.
The exception is Southern Prince George’s, where the lifestyle is more rural. In that area you will find expansive farmland that has so far survived nearby development reminding us of the county’s earlier days as “tobacco country.”
The county is home to the University of Maryland and Maryland Terps, the Washington Redskins’ FedEx Field, Prince George’s Equestrian Center and Show Place Arena, Six Flags America, Joint Base Andrews and Air Force One, the National Wildlife Visitor Center, NASA Goddard, National Harbor and many Washington, D.C. commuters.
While the territory was probably occupied by indians for thousands of years before European settlers arrived in the 17th century. The county today bears little resemblance to the day it was formed in 1696, due to several subsequent divisions to create other counties.
Prince George’s County has a total area of 498.45 square miles, located in the Atlantic coastal plain. The landscape is characterized by gently rolling hills and valleys, of which 13 square miles is actually water.
