From Cows to Games, Fireworks & FestivalsWhen Takoma Park was founded in 1883 the parcel of land that today is Lee Jordan Field was part of a large farm belonging to the Brashears family. A stream known as Brashears Run flowed here across a lush, soggy pasture. A son-in-law, Roger Hodges later started a business call Dairy that delivered milk from cows that grazed on the farm.
