A Little History
Waldorf started its life as a station town on a rural crossroads, around 1850. Its original name was Beantown, named after a local family. However, the General Assembly of Maryland, in 1880, changed the name to Waldorf to honor William Waldorf Astor, who was the great grandson of John Jacob Astor. J.J. Astor had been born in Germany, in a place called Walldorf. In a tribute to the town of Waldorf, MD, a city in Minnesota-Plumb Valley-changed its own name to Waldorf on 29th July 1908.
After the legalization of slot machines, Waldorf-originally a tobacco village-became a famous gambling destination, during the 1950’s. It caused a boom in the town, which lasted right through to 1968, when gambling was outlawed once again.
