The Agricultural History Farm Park in Derwood, Maryland, is a 455-acre park that offers visitors a glimpse into the region’s agricultural past. The park was established in 1976 and has since been a popular destination for families and history enthusiasts alike.

The park’s history can be traced back to the early 1900s when it served as a dairy farm. In the 1950s, the farm was purchased by the Montgomery County government and was converted into an agricultural research and education center. In the 1970s, the county decided to turn the farm into a park to preserve its rich agricultural heritage.

Today, the park features several historic buildings, including a 19th-century barn, a milk house, and a blacksmith shop. Visitors can take a self-guided tour of the park and learn about the history of farming in Montgomery County. The park also hosts several events throughout the year, including a Fall Festival and a Spring Farm Festival, where visitors can participate in traditional farm activities and enjoy live music and food.

Apart from its historical significance, the Agricultural History Farm Park also serves as an excellent location for family and engagement portraits. The park’s sprawling fields, rustic buildings, and picturesque landscapes provide a beautiful backdrop for photography sessions. Photographers can capture special moments while surrounded by the park’s natural beauty, and couples can create lasting memories against the park’s charming rustic backdrop. The park also offers plenty of space for children to play, making it a great location for a family day out.

Additionally, the park has several trails for hiking, bird watching, and horseback riding. The trails offer visitors a chance to explore the park’s vast natural beauty and observe the local wildlife. The park also has a picnic area and a playground, making it a perfect destination for a family outing.
