Welcome to Edmonston!

Edmonston is a small, friendly community located 2.5 miles from Washington, D.C., with a population of approximately 1500 residents, and is a member of the “Port Towns” organization. The town has a Mayor & Town Council form of government, in addition to its own Police, Code Enforcement, and Public Works Departments. Edmonston is home to one of the “Greenest Streets in America,” thanks to the completion of our “Green Street” Project on November 9, 2010. The “Green Street” Project has become a model for many other communities wishing to “Go Green,” and is just one of the many ways Edmonston is working hard to make our town a “healthier” place to live!
