The Roots of the Community

AS COMMUNITIES began to develop around Potomac, MD in the post-World War II era, Carl Freeman broke ground on the now iconic Cabin John Mall & Shopping Center in 1967.

Since the middle of the 20th Century, the Potomac area has been a haven for generations of families focused on a balanced lifestyle, encompassed by work, activities, events and community. Cabin John Village has been and continues to serve as the central gathering place for the Potomac community— where stories are written, memories are created and meaningful connections are made.
