The quiet, scenic town of Hollywood, MD is located right in the heart of St. Mary’s County, which is wedged between iconic waterways like the Patuxent River, Chesapeake Bay, and the Potomac. Hollywood itself is one of the largest cities in the Patuxent-Chesapeake Corridor and is home to landmarks such as the Sotterley Plantation, in addition to plenty of interesting locations to see and explore, like Greenwell State Park and a number of marinas and landings.
According to legend, Hollywood got its name from a storeowner in 1897. The owner of Thompson’s General Store, located in the Uniontown section of the community, needed a name for the post office inside the store, so he took the name from the holly tree planted in front of the store itself.
St. Mary’s County, Hollywood, and surrounding cities possess a rich heritage that lends the community an air of historic pride and togetherness. The area’s close proximity to Washington, D.C., in addition to several waterways and its history as a source of tobacco trade due to the many plantations in the state allowed Hollywood to become a thriving center of trade and prosperity in the Patuxent-Chesapeake Corridor.
To this day, it’s still a center of rural lifestyle and business. Outdoor recreation is a big deal here with over 500 miles of coastline to explore, and there is, of course, a multitude of locally-sourced seafood restaurants to try.
The unique atmosphere offered by Hollywood and surrounding areas is part of why we at Tom Hodges Mitsubishi love to serve this community. With so many places in St. Mary’s County to explore, having a reliable vehicle is something residents of the area need to depend on, and we are happy to deliver quality vehicles (both used and new) and top-of-the-line service to customers in this community.
