North Hills of Sligo is a beautiful neighborhood of some of the finest older single family homes in Silver Spring.
Set into the heavily wooded hills of Sligo Creek Park (thus the name) this subdivision of Single Family Homes built during the early 1930's to late 1940's is located "inside the Capitol Beltway", close to Downtown Silver Spring and Washington, DC.
The subdivision of North Hills was originally sold as a suburban Neighborhood with large lots "overlooking 2 golf courses". The two golf courses were at Argyle Country Club (what's left of the Argyle Golf Course is now the Public MNCPPC - Sligo Golf Course) and Indian Spring Country Club (what's left of Indian Spring is now the YMCA property)
Considered a Landmark - The old original Brunett Farmhouse (circa 1864) that preceded the development of North Hills, still stands today on an impressive 3/4 acre lot at the top of a hill in the North Hills Subdivision.
A detailed book about the history of North Hills of Sligo Creek was written by Sally Gagne in 2003.
