The city is named for its founder, Christopher Clark Hyatt (1799–1884), who purchased his first parcel of land in the area in 1845. Hyatt opened a store and began mail delivery, officially naming the nascent community "Hyattsville" in his 1859 application to become postmaster. The community's location at the intersection of the Washington and Baltimore Turnpike (modern day US 1) and the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad line made the land attractive for development. In the years following the Civil War, Hyatt and other local landowners subdivided their properties and sold lots, and the population of Hyattsville grew. Hyattsville was incorporated as a city on April 7, 1886.
The historic district of the city is home to a number of Victorian houses built in the late 1880s and Sears bungalows and Arts & Crafts houses built between the wars (late 1910s and early 1940s). Historic Hyattsville is roughly bounded by East West Highway to the north; Route 1 to the east; the 38th Street Neighborhood Park to the south, and Queens Chapel Road to the west.
The City of Hyattsville consists of six subdivisions; Hyattsville Hills, Downtown Hyattsville, Kirkwood, Queens Chapel Manor, Castle Manor, and University Hills. Historic Hyattsville reportedly consists of the Hyattsville Hills, Downtown Hyattsville, and Castle Manor subdivisions.
Queens Chapel Manor neighborhoodEdit
The Queens Chapel Manor neighborhood is contained between Ager Road to the south, East West Highway to the north, Queens Chapel Road to the east, and the Northwest Branch Anacostia River to the west. The neighborhood mainly consists of old, small red brick houses. In addition to these small houses, Queens Chapel Manor consists of four main apartment complexes; the Mosaic at Prince George's Plaza Metro Apartments, the Ager Road Station Apartments, Madison Park Apartments, and Hamilton Manor Apartments.
The Queens Chapel Manor neighborhood is primarily served by the Prince George's Plaza Metro station, which is conveniently located inside its neighborhood parameters. Residents also have easy access to the West Hyattsville Metro station in the adjacent Kirkwood neighborhood, right across Ager Road.
The neighborhood is primarily served by the Queens Chapel Town Center, as well as the Shoppes at Metro Station, Metropolitan Shops at Prince George's Station, Giant Food, and Home Depot on East West Highway, in terms of commerce. Residents also have additional access to shopping at The Mall at Prince Georges and University Town Center in the adjacent University Hills neighborhood.
Parks and recreationEdit
In terms of recreation, the Queens Chapel Manor neighborhood is served by the Heurich Neighborhood Park. The Northwest Anacostia Trail passes through it. Metro's Green Line tracks go through Heurich Park and the Madison Park Apartments, in the Queens Chapel Manor neighborhood when going between the Prince George's Plaza and West Hyattsville Metro Stations.
Places of worshipEdit
Churches include the Redeemer Lutheran Church, First United Church, St. Matthew's Day Parish School, the West Hyattsville Baptist Church, and St. Jerome's Catholic Church.
University Hills neighborhoodEdit
The University Hills neighborhood is contained between East West Highway to the south, University Boulevard to the north, the Northwest Branch Anacostia River to the west, and Adelphi Road to the east. The University Hills neighborhood is southwest of the University of Maryland, College Park campus, west of University Park, and north of University Town Center and The Mall at Prince Georges, which are often considered part of University Hills. Several large apartment blocks are in the area surrounding the Mall at Prince Georges, most of which are not within the city limits. The Hyattsville Branch Library with its iconic Googie flying saucer entrance and Northwestern High School are also located in University Hills.
University Hills does not have its own metro station. However, residents of the University Hills neighborhood have access to the nearby Prince George's Plaza Metro Station in the adjacent Queens Chapel Manor neighborhood. Fortunately, though, residents of the Highview Apartment Complex, Dean Manor Apartments, Belcrest Plaza Apartments, and University Hills neighborhood, all have unique access to the special Metrobus R4 shuttle that runs from these apartment complexes to the Prince George's Plaza, West Hyattsville, and Brookland-CUA Metro stations. In addition to the R4 Metrobus service, residents also have access to three other Metrobus routes on Adelphi Road, two other Metrobus routes at the corner of University Boulevard and Adelphi Road (behind the Graduate Hills Apartments), and another Metrobus route on Toledo Terrace. Additionally, University of Maryland College Park students and faculty have access to the free UM Shuttle that goes from University Hills to the University of Maryland College Park Campus.
Parks and recreationEdit
For recreation, University Hills has the Duck Pond Neighborhood Park. The park consists of a medium-sized pond facing University Boulevard as well as a small playground. The park is also connected by the Northwest Branch Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, which connects this park to the bigger Lake Manor Park across the Anacostia River in the neighborhood of Lewisdale.
Hitching Post Hill (also known as Ash Hill); listed on National Register of Historic Places on September 16, 1977
Kirkwood is a tiny neighborhood contained between the Northwest Branch Anacostia River to the south and west, Queens Chapel Road to the east, and Ager Road to the north. It neighbors the communities of Avondale, Green Meadows, and Queens Chapel Manor. The Kirkwood neighborhood is mainly occupied by the Kirkwood Apartment Complex, Kirkwood Neighborhood Park, and West Hyattsville Metro Station.
Parks and recreationEdit
The Kirkwood neighborhood has two trails that go through the Kirkwood neighborhood park; the Northwest Branch trail and Sligo Creek Trail. The Kirkwood Neighborhood Park, itself, consists of a small basketball court, big soccer field, a picnic area, and small playground.
Historic Hyattsville consists of the four main/ oldest subdivisions that made up the original Hyattsville; Downtown Hyattsville, Ellaville, Hyattsville Hills, and Castle Manor. This neighborhood mainly features small one to two story houses as well as several apartment complexes; such as the Queensbury Park Apartments, Oliver Gardens Apartments, Courtyard Park Apartments, Hyattsville House Apartments, Park Place Apartments, Castle Manor Apartments, Prince Georges Apartments, Top of the Park Apartments, The Oglethorpe A Condominiums, and the newly constructed Hyattsville Arts District Apartments. Historic Hyattsville also uniquely features the Independent Court Assisted Living Homes on Queens Chapel Road for the elderly and disabled to live and be taken care of. Historic Hyattsville also features a courthouse on Rhode Island Avenue (Route 1).
Many residents of the Historic Hyattsville neighborhood shop in the Hyattsville Arts District located in Downtown Hyattsville on Route 1. The Hyattsville Arts district was built in late 2011 and consists of a Yes! Organic Grocery Store, Busboys & Poets Restaurant, Chipotle Mexican Grill Restaurant, and Hair Cuttery. Behind Route 1 in Downtown Hyattsville are where the former B&O Railroad tracks are located. These tracks in Hyattsville were once part of the B&O Hyattsville Rail Station. The station was eventually destroyed and those tracks were used by the historic 82 streetcar line, which traveled from West Potomac Park to Branchville. Now, the train tracks are used by cargo trains. Next to the Hyattsville Arts District is where the longtime Franklin's Restaurant, Bar and General Store is located.
The Bestway Supermarket took over the former Safeway Food & Drug store's spot on Hamilton Street when it closed its doors on February 4, 2012. The Safeway Food & Drug Store had reportedly been operating in Historic Hyattsville for nearly a century. Lastly, if residents want to shop at a much larger shopping mall, they have access to the Prince George's Plaza Shopping Center in the University Hills neighborhood.
The nearest metro stations are the Prince George's Plaza Metro station in the Queens Chapel Manor neighborhood and the West Hyattsville Metro station in the Kirkwood neighborhood; the Rhode Island Avenue Metro station is also relatively close by. In addition to Metrorail service, residents of Historic Hyattsville have access to the nearby Riverdale MARC commuter train station, as well as a few Metrobus and "The Bus" routes. Students and staff at the University of Maryland, College Park have access to the free Shuttle UM Bus that goes from Historic Hyattsville to the University of Maryland, College Park Campus.
Parks and recreationEdit
In terms of recreation, Historic Hyattsville has five neighborhood parks; Deitz Park, Hyatt Park, Robert J. Memorial Park, the 38th Avenue Neighborhood Park, Melrose Park, and Magruder Park.

Downtown Hyattsville is also undergoing revitalization as part of the Gateway Arts District, in the form of the Arts District Hyattsville private development project, which includes townhomes, live-work units, and retail space. The master developer of the 25-acre neighborhood is Bethesda-based EYA. The "economic development town center" of the arts district, the development is being constructed by EYA, Pulte Homes, StreetSense, and Bozzuto Homes. A Busboys and Poets restaurant opened in July 2011; other retail offerings include Yes! Organic Market, Elevation Burger, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Spice 6 Modern Indian, and Tara Thai. In the winter of 2015, a traveling exhibition platform Visual Collaborative collaborated with the Arts District Hyattsville Master Association, utilizing the Lustine Center to host a group exhibition themed Vanity.
When first incorporated, Hyattsville was run by a Board of Commissioners; in May 1900, it switched to a mayor and common council system. Today, the city government consists of a popularly elected mayor and a ten-person city council. Each of the five wards in the city are represented by two popularly elected councilmen.
In January 2015, the Hyattsville Council passed a charter amendment to allow 16- and 17-year-olds to vote in city elections, making Hyattsville one of the few jurisdictions in the United States that has done so. In December 2016, the city expanded voting rights again, granting non-citizen residents the right to vote in municipal elections.

Since 2000, the city has undergone a major redevelopment, including significant residential and retail development in the Arts District Hyattsville (located in the Gateway Arts District), and the area surrounding the Prince George's Plaza Metro station and The Mall at Prince Georges. In the later area, University Town Center contains residential condos, student housing, office buildings, a public plaza, and retail space, including a 14-screen movie theater and several restaurants, as well as a campus of Prince George's Community College. As of 2020[update], additional residential and retail development is underway near the West Hyattsville Metro station, among other locations in the city. Along Route 1, craft brewers and distillers have played a notable role in revitalizing old commercial properties.
Prince George's County Police Department District 1 Station in Hyattsville serves areas outside of the city that are not located in an incorporated municipality that maintains its own police department.
The United States Postal Service operates Hyattsville Post Office, the West Hyattsville Post Office, and the Prince Georges Plaza Post Office. The Calvert Carrier Annex has a Hyattsville address but is physically in Riverdale Park.
Roads and highwaysEdit
Several major surface highways serve Hyattsville. The most prominent of these is U.S. Route 1, which follows Rhode Island Avenue and Baltimore Avenue through the center of the city. US 1 connects southward to Washington, D.C. and northward through College Park to Interstate 95/Interstate 495 (the Capital Beltway). U.S. Route 1 Alternate follows the southern section of Baltimore Avenue to Bladensburg and provides an alternate route to Washington, D.C. Maryland Route 410 follows East-West Highway, connecting many of Washington, D.C.'s inner suburbs with Hyattsville. Two other state highways serving to connect Hyattsville to nearby towns include Maryland Route 208 and Maryland Route 500.
The Prince George's Plaza Metro station and West Hyattsville Metro station all serve Hyattsville. Hyattsville is also served by the Riverdale MARC commuter train station, as well as a few Metrobus and "The Bus" routes. Students and staff at the University of Maryland College Park have access to the free Shuttle UM Bus that goes from Historic Hyattsville to the University of Maryland College Park Campus.

Colleges and universitiesEdit
Prince George's County Memorial Library System (PGCMLS) operates the Hyattsville Branch Library, which in 1964 was the first county-built library building for PGCMLS. The original mid-century modern building with its distinctive googie-style flying saucer entryway was demolished in 2019 after a failed effort by preservationists to have the building renovated instead of replaced. The library system's administrative offices were housed in a building adjacent to the Hyattsville Branch until they were moved to the Largo Library in Largo in 2015.
In popular cultureEdit
The city of Hyattsville has expressed concern that crime in non-Hyattsville locations sharing the same ZIP codes and unincorporated communities designated as "Hyattsville" by the United States Postal Service creates an image problem for the city. The city was involved in a minor controversy in April 2006. In the episode airing April 27, the Geena Davis television series Commander in Chief depicted Hyattsville as having twelve murders in six months; it also indirectly depicted the city as being an urban ghetto dominated by poor minorities. The city and Prince George's County were very upset at ABC. On May 1, ABC formally apologized to both the city and county.
In 2017, the Hyattsville City Police Department became the first law enforcement agency in the United States to put a Chevrolet Bolt (All-Electric) Fully Marked Police Patrol Vehicle into service. It has since added an All-Electric Police Motorcycle, and Six Public Electric Vehicle Charging Stations, which are free to use by the public. Click here for video
