About the City of Gaithersburg

Gaithersburg is located in Montgomery County, MD, northwest of Washington D.C. It is divided into the east and west sections which are separated by the Interstate 270. The eastern section of Gaithersburg is older and is the original part of the town and landmarks from that time can be seen, especially in the historic central business district called "Olde Towne."
