In 1873 the B&O Railroad constructed a station at Gaithersburg, designed by Ephraim Francis Baldwin as part of his well-known series of Victorian stations in Maryland.

In 1899, Gaithersburg was selected as one of six global locations for the construction of an International Latitude Observatory as part of a project to measure the earth's wobble on its polar axis. The Gaithersburg Latitude Observatory is (as of 2007) the only National Historic Landmark in the City of Gaithersburg. The observatory and five others in Japan, Italy, Russia, and the United States gathered information that is still used by scientists today, along with information from satellites, to determine polar motion; the size, shape, and physical properties of the earth; and to aid the space program through the precise navigational patterns of orbiting satellites. The Gaithersburg station operated until 1982 when computerization rendered the manual observation obsolete. The International Latitude Observatories were a system of (originally) six Observatories located near the Parallel of 39 degrees 8 minutes north latitude. ...

  4. ^ According to Gaithersburg: History of a City (Arcadia Publishing, 2002), the first settlements at Logtown, near the present-day Summit Hall, occurred in the 1750s, while Benjamin Gaither settled near the present-day Diamond and Frederick avenues "prior to 1800". This latter settlement became informally known as "Gaithersburg" sometime after that. The Forest Oak Post Office was located in Gaither's store.
