Bowie, Maryland Houses for Sale

Bowie is an eastern suburb of Washington, D.C. Situated in the county of Prince George, state of Central Maryland, United States. Here build up a local area of small agricultural-based food production called Huntington. Belair, an estate established around 1745 for Governor Samuel Ogle, was the first substantial settlement at the location. The area assigned its name in 1880 as Bowie derived from a government official of Maryland (1867-72) named Oden Bowie. The site was selected as the main rail junction in the 1870s, which promoted the development and growth of the city. It was then incorporated in 1916. The city's community remained minimal and then started its growing population in the late 1950s when a developer bought the Belair estate property. Since then, thousands of houses were built in the area all through the next twenty years. Bowie is mostly a private home. The region is affiliated with cultivating its horse breeding, which is a Thoroughbred, having brought in the first horses in the 1740s by Governor Ogle.
