Indian Spring – 1940’s Washington Suburban Dream Homes

Indian Spring Entrance Sign at Colesville and Hastings The Indian Spring Neighborhood is located just inside the Beltway in Silver Spring, Md 20901, east of Colesville Road (Route 29). The southern border is Franklin Avenue and the west, University Boulevard.

Originally built as a “bedroom community” for Washington DC Metro area workers, Indian Spring had a  Golf Course, Country Club, Parks,  plenty of open country space, Street in Indian Spring Terracewoodland, peace and quiet outside of the busy city.

Abraham Kay and others purchased the defunct Indian Spring Golf Club and the 150 surrounding acres in 1939.  It was revived into a functioning popular country club until  1960.  Indian Spring Country Club moved out to Layhill Road when the Capitol Beltway came through and sliced it in half.   After the country club left, the grounds and buildings that remained became the home of the Silver Spring YMCA.   Eventually, the vac

ant land leftover from the Country Club on the north side of the Beltway was used for the relocation of Montgomery Blair High School in the mid 1990’s.

The original Houses,  built closest to the golf course, are in the subdivision called “Indian Spring Club Estates” and were the homes built by Kay Development in 1940.  Radiating out from these original 212 houses are the smaller subdivisions of Indian Spring Terrace, Indian Spring Park, Indian Spring Manor and Indian Spring Hills.  These smaller subdivisions were built by different developers over the years.  There are 767 Single Family homes total in the 5 Indian Spring Subdivisions.

Indian Spring was listed in the Washingtonian one of the “Best Places to Live”   “This is the kind of inner-Beltway suburb that downtown Silver Spring was revitalized for.  The professionals living here may have families, but they’re not so suburbanized that they don’t enjoy the art films, live music, and trendy food that are trademarks of the new Silver Spring.” – Washingtonian Magazine.

Today Indian Spring has family-oriented social events for neighbors to meet and an email group for neighbors to keep up on the latest news, events, announcements and learn about local services.  Some of the Neighborhood events are:   “Taste of Indian Spring”, neighborhood clean up, yard sale, Fall Fest, July 4th Celebration, Holiday Celebrations a
