So funny to have found this site,I have not thought about this place and those good times for quite awhile .Just a few thoughts anyone remember The old Eastover shopping center how about the old McDonalds on Livingston Rd ,Indian Head Hwy. Used to live right off Livingston Rd how about Jiffy sub shops you could roll up a 11pm and grab a steak and cheese.Someone mentoned SAMs car wash I worked there for a couple of months one of my first jobs lots of crazy times and people they used to pay you once a week in a little brown envolpe cash with the withholding taxes hand written on the envlope. The mall I think was the only indoor one around.We used to hang at the public library on Oxon Hill Rd great place to meet chicks.Man I wore out lots of shoes walking and hitchhiking around PG county, thanks again for this site it's funny how it's hard to remember everything. ,
Live in the Marlow Heights, Hillcrest Heights, Temple Hills area from 1970-1982.
I grew up in. Marlow Heights in the mid 50s. We played baseball at the location of overdo mall. Wa Jed to school, played golf at Oxonian run golf course, got ice cream at Highs. Great friends that I have list contact with.
I was googling for a phone number for Home Beneficial Life Insurance Company that had a district office in Marlow Heights and saw that someone mentioned they used to work there (but couldn't find then entry after getting on the page). Does anyone know if it's still in business or how to get hold of the company. I'm cleaning out my Dad's house and found that he had a life insurance policy from Home Beneficial but I don't have a way to get in touch with them to see if it's still valid. If anyone has any info, it will be appreciated (my e-mail is email@example.com). My great aunt, Helen Garden, lived in Temple Hills from the mid-60's until her passing in 2008.
Graduated from Bowie HS 1968. BHS opened in 1967, so the class of 67 had been to Duvall HS in 66. We had a lot of blocks, and collegiates... but not too many mods. Hippies were about to break wide open. I was one.
I grew up in Oxon Run Hillcrest Heights and Marlow Heights the memories of those times are as if they happen yesterday hanging out with friends at the rec center or drug fair or the Iverson mall or where ever you happen to be at the time there was always something to do like pigging out at Steaknsack or Jr Hot Shoppes or going to the shopping center carnival each year or checking out the side walk sales in the spring it was always some thing different the friends you would get to know during the school years at Stoddert jr high and aer still friends with to this day though we have lost some over the years this is what I remember about Marlow Heights and it will stay with me always.

I lived on Temple Hills Road, one block (on right) from St. Barnabas Rd. Parents owned Karl,s German Delicatessen in Hillcrest Heights Shopping Center, My Uncle owned the Exon station next to Sam,s Carwash. Married and devorced two of the Church girls (Wanda & Sharon).In 1969 drove red 428 CJ Mach 1.. During high school years, worked a A&P , Heap Big Beef , and Hillcrest Exon . Really had a great time growing up in the area.. Alot of great memories..
Well I really was a big fan of red barns but at the time I really confused all that worked there as I would always order a plain burger and fries.
my father was the owner/ operator of Branch Auto Electric, near the old gem store. Age has taken its toll along with some memories, we have been trying to come up with the name of the old hotel/motel that was where the new wendys is, and in front of Speedy auto parts. It used to have large lions outside and hosted many bands. any idea? thanx
