(In Aramaic, בית חסדא beth ḥesda means “House of Mercy” and in Hebrew, בית חסד “beit ḥesed” means “House of Kindness”.) Bethesda is situated along a major thoroughfare that was originally the route of an ancient Native American trail. Between 1805 and 1821, it was developed into a toll road called the Washington and Rockville Turnpike, which carried tobacco and other products between Georgetown and Rockville, and north to Frederick. A small settlement grew around a store and tollhouse along the turnpike. By 1862, the community was known as “Darcy’s Store” after the owner of a local establishment, William E. Darcy.
