New Home Communities in Accokeek

Ever seen the Disney film Pocahontas? The events in the film took place "just around the river bend" from this town on the Potomac River. Accokeek is an old place, and it has a genuine connection to the birth of America as we know it today. If we've piqued your curiosity, you can get closer to that heritage at Piscataway Park, home of the Claude Moore Colonial Farm, a tobacco farm that has been in operation since the eighteenth century. Visitors from all over the D.C. area--or even farther out-- come to see this farm, formally known as the National Colonial Farm. Managed by the Accokeek Foundation, a non-profit that takes obvious pride in preserving the past, the farm nevertheless remains rooted firmly in the present. It's a working farm, with livestock and men and women who devote their lives to making sure the property continues to inform and inspire Maryland residents.

What can you learn from visiting such an old farm? These acres have been inhabited since the days when "the United States" was no more than an idea in the minds of a few freedom-loving colonists. Once you come here, you'll soon realize just how far we've come as a nation. Some things never change: from churning their own butter, to commuting to D.C. for a high-powered job, Accokeek residents have always worked hard. The "living history" part of the museum allows visitors to see what 1770's Maryland looked like: bonnets, petticoats, and all. Special events throughout the year allow guests to dive even deeper into history. Ever wondered how early colonists had fun (or even if they had fun at all)? So did the Accokeek Foundation. Now, thanks to their research, they can put together an authentic colonial barbeque, so visitors can have a good, old-fashioned great time.

The National Farm is a great introduction to the rural character of the town of Accokeek as a whole. Accokeek is a small, quiet town that will make a great home for a young family, or perhaps a pair of empty-nesters. If you prefer to have urban amenities near you, D.C.'s famous dining scene, its flock of world-class museums, and its dynamic street culture, are all right around the corner. Yet if you want to come home to a small-town atmosphere, Accokeek makes a great compromise between the best of country life and the best of city life.

When the first colonists made their home in Accokeek, they didn't have New Home Source to help them. But fortunately, you do! Let us help you select the home of your dreams from among the work of the nation's best home builders.
