Sandy Spring, Maryland is an unincorporated community in Montgomery County, Maryland.GeographySandy Spring's boundaries are roughly Brooke Road and Dr. Bird Road to the north and west, Ednor Road to the south, and New Hampshire Avenue to the east.The United States Census Bureau combines Sandy Spring with the nearby community of Ashton to form the census-designated place of Ashton-Sandy Spring, and all census data are tabulated for this combined entity.HistoryThe community was founded by Quakers who arrived in the early 18th century searching for land where they could grow tobacco and corn.One of the very early land owners in the Sandy Spring area was Richard Snowden, who patented (purchased) the 1000acre "Snowden's Manor" in 1715. Snowden gradually enlarged his property with additional land purchases over the next few decades until it was surveyed at over 9000acre as "Snowden's Manor Enlarged" in 1743.Another important early landowner, Major John Bradford, had patented over 2000acre in the Sandy Spring area, including "Charley Forest" in 1716, "Charley Forest Enlarged", "Higham", and "Discovery." Bradford sold off large parts of these properties, but Snowden's son-in-law, James Brooke, later bought up the original Charley Forest land as well as other land in the area, eventually owning over 22000acre by the 1760s.When using our United States online trip maker to make an itinerary online, Sandy Spring holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
