Do you know how the township of Waldorf first got its name? Sure, it may be regular know-how here, however outside of the neighborhood limits few people have ever heard of this area, however i mean to change all that, and for years I have been collecting cool pieces of trivia & history about Waldorf & the surrounding area, however right now I am too tied up with my Heating & Air Conditioning labor to sit down & write, however one afternoon that is my dream. I want to become an author, & write a novel of historical romance fiction set here in Waldorf, drawing upon its actual history. The most interesting thing to me is that technically Waldorf is not a town, & never has been… Waldorf started as a collection of houses, mostly by laboring-class folks, who needed to commute to DC. From there it expanded entirely quickly, growing by 15 times its original size within 20 years, which is simply phenomenal. To this afternoon Waldorf is not respectfully a town, even though it is the 4th greatest popular center in the state! Long before there was a big population here, the part was settled in the mid to late 1600s, but believe it or not, the original named for Waldorf was “beantown” however was later changed to honor William Waldorf Astor! Like I said, one afternoon I hope to collect all of this fascinating information into a book, however the Heating & Air Conditioning biz is just too hectic these afternoons. It’s about all I can do to keep up with the new Heating & Air Conditioning construction projects in Waldorf.
