Welcome to the Town of Glen Echo! 

Since 1904, we have been an incorporated town situated above the Potomac River in Maryland’s Montgomery County. People are often drawn to our town’s close knit, unique community. We are adjacent to Glen Echo Park, convenient to the walking and biking paths on the C&O canal and next to the historic Clara Barton House. 

Please explore our website as a visitor to the area or as a resident.

Glen Echo Land Acknowledgement Statement

It is with deference to the past and the original people of the land on which Glen Echo resides, we respectfully acknowledge this land firstly belonged to the Piscataway Conoy tribe and the Susquehanna people.

We recognize these people were disposed of their land by settler colonists unethically, inhumanely, and unjustly.

In making these acknowledgements, we make steps in respecting  and honoring this land’s true history. 

What is  a Land Acknowledgement Statement?

It is a statement to acknowledge the original inhabitants of our land as a sincere effort by Glen Echo to combat racism and inequity by highlighting historical truths and providing accurate education.

The Town of Glen Echo condemns violence and racism towards Black people and all people of color; we stand in solidarity with those who peacefully and persistently protest and fight against systemic racism and injustice. The history of our country reflects that we must now and must always uplift voices that have been silenced and use positions of authority to expose not just covert acts of bias but also racism within our country and its institutions. We deeply believe in creating a world of equality, justice and fairness. The Town of Glen Echo is committed to being a safe, inclusive and welcoming community.  June 19, 2020
