The area to be addressed through this project includes that identified as the Cheverly Historic Community in the 2010 Approved Historic Sites and Districts Plan (pp. 223-224) and is composed largely of those portions of the present Town of Cheverly that were platted by Robert Marshall, president of the Washington Suburban Realty Company, in seven sections between 1918 and 1926. The desired consultant services would produce all the documentation required for review by the Prince George’s County Historic Preservation Commission Prince George’s County Historic Preservation Commission, the Maryland Historical Trust, and the United States Department of the Interior/National Park Service.
