The Blair Subdivision is one of the earliest subdivision of homes in Silver Spring.  Originally called E Brooke Bungalow in Blair Subdivision Silver Spring, Md 20910Lee's Addition to Silver Spring, it is one of E Brooke Lee's first forays into Residential Real Estate Development.  Carved out of land that was part of the Blair Family Country Estate, many of the street names come from the Blair and Lee families, such as Gist, Violet and  Woodbury.  There is even a street named after the famous horse Selim that threw Francis Preston Blair and ran off, causing the discovery of the original "Silver Spring". 

Most of E Brooke Lee's addition eventually became the commercialized area of Downtown Silver Spring and South Silver Spring.  There are residential single family homes left that make up the Blair Subdivision with some sections called Blair Takoma.  The boundaries of the residential sections of Blair and Blair Takoma are roughly:  Sligo Avenue to the South, Philadelphia Avenue and the Montgomery College Campus to the North, Fenton Street to the West and Piney Branch Road on the East.
