Welcome to the City of Hyattsville

Christopher Clark Hyatt purchased a land parcel in 1845 and soon after the surrounding farmland was subdivided into housing lots. By 1859, the tract officially began to be recognized as Hyattsville.

According to G. M. Hopkin's 1878 Atlas of Prince George's County, "Hyattsville ... has gradually increased in beauty and prosperity until it stands as one of the foremost villages between Washington and Baltimore."

In 2004, Hyattsville's National Historic District was extended to include over 1,000 primary resources. The District also includes two sites separately designated as Historic Sites - the U. S. Post Office on Gallatin Street, built in the 1930's and the Armory, built in 1918.
