Auto Transport to Silver Spring, Maryland
Silver Spring is a census-designated place (which means it’s an unincorporated community, not a city) located in Montgomery County, in the U.S. state of Maryland. Home to a population of over 76,700 residents, Silver Spring, despite not being an incorporated municipality, is the fourth-largest area in Maryland by population, after Baltimore, Columbia and Germantown. Founded as little more than a mansion, Silver Spring was still small by the outbreak of the American Civil War and was actually occupied by Confederate forces in 1864, though it was of little strategic importance. During the 20th century Silver Spring began to boom as a commercial district, attracting new residents to support burgeoning industries and keeping the area growing.
