Hyattsville Maryland is a town that has recently become one of the most up and coming towns in the Washington metropolitan area. Attracting young families and recent college graduates, Hyattsville has a lot to offer to people looking for a small inclusive community. However Hyattsville hasn’t always been this way and has seen a lot of change over the past couple decades. We have decided to look into what made Hyattsville the city it is today. Through our ethnographic research and data studies, this is what we have found.
