Bungalows Galore in Downtown East Silver Spring – Blair Subdivision

The Blair Subdivision is one of the earliest subdivision of homes in Silver Bungalow in Blair Subdivision East Silver SpringSpring.  Originally called E Brooke Lee’s Addition to Silver Spring, it is one of E Brooke Lee’s first forays into Residential Real Estate Development.  E Brooke Lee’s father,  Blair Lee, had originally started developing the Blair area in the early 1900’s aroung the B&O Railroad Station.   Carved out of land that was part of the Blair Family Country Estate, many of the street names come from the Blair and Lee families, such as Gist, Violet and  Woodbury.  There is even a tiny street named after the famous horse “Selim” that threw Francis Preston Blair and ran off, causing the discovery of the original “Silver Spring”.   Blair is one of the first working class neighborhoods of Silver Spring.
