The Mitchellville Storekeeper's HouseMitchellville centered around a post office in 1865 that took its name from John Mitchell (1787-1861), owner of substantial holdings. The village grew when the Pope's Creek line of the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad opened in 1873. A general store operated by Samuel Domer was here by the 1870s, around which developed a community with a stable, garage and gas pump, office, bar, poolroom, barber shop, a feed mill, post office, blacksmith, school and Hotel.
