Woodmoor and Indian Spring Village are the largest of the Legal Subdivisions in the Neighborhood known as Woodmoor. Woodmoor's first homes were built in the late 1930s. In the late 1930's, Indian Spring Country Club (now the Silver Spring YMCA) and Argyle Country Club (now Sligo Creek Public Golf Course) were a big draw for this quiet suburban "bedroom" community. Saint Bernadette's Church and the opening of Saint B's school drew many young families to the Community.
The cool, art deco style, circa 1940's Woodmoor Shopping Center at the edge of this beautiful neighborhood was recently restored. The medium sized, 3 story Shopping Center still has quaint, locally owned well known and long lasting mom and pop shops like the Woodmoor Pastry Shop, Santucci's Italian Deli, the Watch Pocket and Hoover Fisher's Florist to name a few. The Silver Spring Stage has been operating for many years in the basement of the Woodmoor Shopping Center that I hear, was once a bowling alley. More well know chains such as a CVS Drugstore, a Starbucks and Subway are sprinkled in this mix of stores.
The Northwest Branch Park and it's stream runs along the northern Boundary of Woodmoor and offers a rich opportunity for recreation and nature watching for Woodmoor Residents. Woodmoor is a neighbor of the Northwest Branch and has it's own Woodmoor Green Team.
A pretty Neighborhood of 700+ Single Family Homes located in the Four Corners Area of Silver Spring, Md in 20901. Woodmoor brings to mind, older charming Cape Cods, Colonials mixed with a few post-war Ramblers and Split Levels on neighborly, shady, tree lined streets.
