historic stones in Rosslyn

From 1935 to 1942, the estate of famous general George S. Patton was in Rosslyn at the current location of Prospect House (between 12th and 14th Streets).  Stones from the estate remain standing like a stone wall right up to the present.

The Congressional School occupied the site from 1942 to 1960.  The presence of that school also is memorialized in the stone wall.

This information and much more is from the excellent Radnor / Ft. Myer Heights Neighborhood Conservation Plan 2007.  Take a walk around Rosslyn's historic Radnor / Ft. Myer Heights neighborhood and enjoy all the interesting sights.
