District Heights Information and Highlights

District Heights is an incorporated city in Prince George’s County, Maryland that resides near Maryland Route 5. It is a little less than ten miles away from central Washington D.C. Nearby areas also include Capitol Heights, Forestville and Sutiland. Originally, District Heights was largely farm land that was owned by Major Leander P. Williams, purchased as four patented Lord Baltimore tracts known as: “Good Luck, “Magruder’s Plains Enlarged”, “the Levels”, and “Offutt’s Adventure”. These names coincided with grants given by King Charles I of Great Britain that belonged to Colonel Ninian Beall, Benjamin Berry, and Alexander Magruder.
