Brandywine is an unincorporated area and census-designated place (CDP) in Prince George's County, Maryland, United States, although the postal delivery area includes part of Charles County as well near Malcolm.[1]

The population of Brandywine (CDP) was 1,410 at the 2000 census, which is a small percentage of the area covered by the Brandywine post office. The Brandywine zip code covers a very large area both east and west of busy Maryland Route 5/U.S. Route 301, which merge at Brandywine. Cedarville State Forest and the picturesque Baden community to the east, including a trailer park community, are part of greater Brandywine. The Census also refers to "District 11, Brandywine, Maryland" which had a population of 12,313 in 2000[2] and an estimated 15,877 in 2009.[3]

Although surrounded on either side by the sizable communities of Clinton and Waldorf, Brandywine itself has remained primarily rural and scenic; however, this is beginning to change, with new housing developments being built. Brandywine Crossing shopping center, whose first phase opened in October 2008, has Target, Safeway, Costco, Marshalls, Jo-Ann Stores, Bonefish Grill, Kobe Japanese Steakhouse, and is planning a 16-screen Kerasotes Movie Theater.[4] The community also includes Gwynn Park High School, a golf course, and a construction equipment sales lot.



According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 4.4 square miles (11.4 km2), all of it land, as the CDP does not cover the entire area of the modern location called "Brandywine, Maryland".


As of the census[5] of 2000, there were 1,410 people, 478 households, and 377 families residing in the CDP. The population density was 320.4 people per square mile (123.7/km2). There were 501 housing units at an average density of 113.8/sq mi (44.0/km2). The racial makeup of the CDP was 56.24% White, 38.23% African American, 1.13% Native American, 1.13% Asian, 0.07% Pacific Islander, 0.57% from other races, and 2.62% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 0.71% of the population.
