ROCKVILLE MD HISTORY and why we need to preserve it.  Important to many residents of towns with a long and strong history, county and town planners will do well to preserve the old as well as manage the new.  Towns in Montgomery County would quickly lose much of their charm and vitality if the priceless Victorian homes, the historical train stations, the popular shops located in the original areas of town were replaced with just new construction.  Local towns in Maryland and Northern Virginia almost always preserve the MARC Train Stations.  These stations are along the original rail road lines upon which many of our most important towns were founded.  Commerce thrived along these rail ways just as they now thrive in close proximity to International airports.           TYPICAL MARC STATI...
