Montevideo (named for its view of Sugarloaf Mountain to the north) is an historic 400-acre farm established in 1830 by John Parke Custis Peter, a great-grandson of Martha Washington. The house derives its Federal style from Tudor Place, the Georgetown seat of the Peter family, whose family cemetery is at Montevideo. Austin Kiplinger and his wife, Gogo, acquired the property in 1958, restored the long-abandoned landmark, and were among the first landowners in Montgomery County to put their land under farmland preservation easements.
Along with Plow and Stars Farm, other good stewards of the land make productive use of Montevideo. The Willard family of Poolesville grow the commodity crops of corn, soybeans and wheat. The western side of the property is devoted to equestrian activity, as the permanent home of the Seneca Valley Pony Club and the Potomac Hunt Races in May. The
