La Plata Real Estate

Living in La Plata, MD
La Plata, Maryland located 35 miles south of D.C., is a charming community with a history spanning back to 1888. Its namesake is the Argentinian river that was a favorite location of one of the original owners of the land. A massive tornado hit the area in 2002, but the renovation and revitalization efforts brought the community together and added a mix of new elements to this small residential town. Small businesses, relative proximity to D.C., and scenic surroundings make La Plata a quiet, but not remote community.
