OUR NAME

'Potomac' The unpronounceable-funny name...

if you don't live in Washington, DC! 

The Potomac River (pronounced 'Po-toe-mac')  flows past Washington, DC , originating high in the Appalachian Mountains of Maryland and West Virginia, and the high country of Virgina, terminating 405 miles down river into the Chesapeake Bay. 

"Potomac" is a European spelling of  Patowmeck, the Algonquian name of a Native American village on its southern bank. Native Americans had different names for different parts of the river, calling the river "Patawomke"or, "Patawomeck"

(as on Captain John Smith's map) to Patomake,"  "Patowmack," and numerous other spellings in the 18th century and now  simply "Potomac"

The Native Americans also referred to all the land and territory from the highlands of Maryland, Virginia, South and East including Baltimore, to the Eastern Shore (which is pretty much our territory).  Potomac, literally meant to these tribes trading with the new Europeans and New  American  settlers... "To bring valuable goods to the Trading Place."
