THE HISTORY OF THE DARCY

The Darcy at 7171 Woodmont Ave Bethesda was built by PN Hoffman and Stonebridge Carras. Other projects that PN Hoffman and Stonebridge Carras has built include Chevy Chase Point, Chevy Chase Center, the Edgemoor Condominium, and Two Bethesda Metro Center. Monty Hoffman, chief executive of PN Hoffman, called the location “the corner of Main and Main.”

The Darcy is named for the founder of the downtown Bethesda business district – William E. Darcy. In 1862, this shopkeeper and farmer opened the first general store in the area, at the intersection of Old Georgetown Road and Wisconsin Avenues. He was also postmaster of the area that was known as Darcy PO until Bethesda was established in 1871.
