Edgewood was primarily an agricultural area until early in the 20th century. When the U.S. Government opened Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) in this area, it began to expand. The interstate became the center of many new developments including hotels, restaurants and commercial business. Due to the location of APG, there was an increased need for housing for military personnel. Many of the homes that were built during this time are still in use today.
Edgewood real estate was largely developed in the 1950s and 1960s in response to the needs of the growing population. When Interstate 95 opened in 1963, this created even more expansion and development of residential neighborhoods, industrial centers, shopping centers and businesses. Historical sites within the city are mainly on Old Edgewood Road as well as a few other areas including APG.
