Waldorf is either named after the town of Walldorf, Germany, or has a similar derivation: that is, either a German word meaning "forest village," or named after the Waldenses, a 12th Century religious sect. Once a tobacco market village, it came to prominence in the 1950s as a gambling destination after slot machines were legalized in Charles County in 1949. The boom lasted until 1968 when gambling was once again outlawed. Its subsequent substantial growth as a residential community began with a 1970 loan package from the Department of Housing and Urban Development which fueled the giant planned community of St. Charles, south of Waldorf's town center. Many sections of St. Charles are still being developed, including a 60 and above retirement home and many themed restaurants along the highly populated U.S. Route 301. Hampshire, Lancaster, Dorchester, Charles Crossing, Avalon and Westlake Village are around the newest and most populated neighborhoods in this area. The original neighborhoods of St. Charles are Carrington, Bannister, Wakefield, Sentry Woods and Huntington.

Waldorf is predominantly a bedroom community for many residents who commute to work at other points in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, especially personnel at Andrews Air Force Base. Waldorf's own jobs are primarily in the service and sales industry only. St. Charles Towne Centre, a major shopping mall, opened in the spring of 1990 and was remodeled in 2007. St. Charles Towne Centre draws shoppers and diners from Maryland, parts of Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia, causing Waldorf to be called the "shopping capital of Southern Maryland." Route 301 also boasts the "Waldorf Motor Mile," with car dealerships located primarily along the northbound side. In 2005, Waldorf opened its third public high school ("North Point"), which has advanced science/technology programs; the Capital Clubhouse 24-hour indoor sports complex and ice rink also opened that year. (See list of other schools below). In 2006, plans were announced to build two more shopping centers, including one with high-end stores and an attractive "lifestyle" town center design layout. Ground was also broken to build an office park with mid-rise office buildings near Western Parkway and Route 228 (Berry Road). Waldorf's volunteer fire department is the largest in Maryland.

Transportation

The major routes in Waldorf are:

  • U.S. Route 301, running north to south from Brandywine, MD to the north and White Plains, MD to the south. It is lined continuously for several miles with shopping centers, restaurants, car dealers, and other businesses. Although connecting to Virginia only by the outdated, narrow 2-lane Governor Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge, it is nevertheless used by some long-distance East Coast through motorists as an alternative to Interstate 95/495 which often has major traffic backups (see Woodrow Wilson Bridge). In the years to come, due to traffic concerns, a bypass may be built through either Western or Eastern Waldorf, or the highway may continue on the same route through Waldorf with overpasses.[citation needed] This will give an interstate feel to the Waldorf area and ultimately take away traffic congestion to the north-south routes in Waldorf. See the External Links section for more information.
  • Maryland Route 5 (Leonardtown Road), which joins US 301 in Brandywine to the north and splits at the city line to bypass Waldorf on Mattawoman-Beantown Road. It runs from Washington, D.C. and Brandywine in the north to Hughesville, MD and the southern tip of Maryland. A minor league professional baseball stadium is planned near this road in a few years. MD 5 also has a small business corridor which runs westward from the intersection of Mattawoman-Beantown Road, St. Charles Parkway, and Leonardtown Road until its terminus at US 301.
  • Maryland Route 925, also known as Old Washington Road. It runs north to south through Waldorf, closely parallel to US 301.
  • St. Charles Parkway, which lies in the eastern side of the city, is another scenic, landscaped major thoroughfare within the city, ending at White Plains State Park. This is sometimes referred to as the most beautiful road in Waldorf, especially during the spring, summer, and autumn months of the year. This road is gradually being extended south to the county seat, La Plata, MD, which will eventually make an alternative to Route 301 between the two towns.

Public transportation is provided by Van-Go, a bus system developed for most areas through Waldorf and some rural areas in Charles and St.Mary's Counties, in the outlying areas of the city. Buses operated by the Keller Bus Company and Maryland Department of Transportation also take commuters to downtown Washington, D.C., and ridership is rapidly growing.

Traffic

Traffic in Waldorf is extremely congested at the moment, and the state is still evaluating options for a U.S. Route 301 bypass around western Waldorf. Due to Waldorf's bedroom community nature and lack of any significant hometown industry, its highways can become very congested in the morning commutes north to Washington D.C., and also on Friday through Sunday in every direction due to shoppers, many of them visiting from other counties. Much of the congestion is seen at the intersection of Route 228 and 301, on Berry Road going westward to Western Parkway, near St.Patrick's Drive, on Mall Circle surrounding St. Charles Towne Center, and on Smallwood Drive near the neighborhood of Carrington. Most traffic is in the southern areas of Waldorf. This article needs additional references or sources for verification. ... U.S. Route 301 is a spur of U.S. Route 1. ...
