The town and road were originally sited by then-lieutenant George Meade of the Corps of Topographical Engineers, whose commander named it for him.[7] The 1880s business district was located on old Wire Street (now Broadway), which was a casualty of four devastating fires. Today, there are over 150 buildings which are designated as landmarks.[8] In the 1890s the Fort Meade Street Railway operated a horse-drawn service in the town.
