historic artifacts uncovered in Rosslyn park

A journalist from Rosslyn's leading local news source has spotted a brick that has worked its way to the surface in Rosslyn's Ft. Myer Heights Park. The brick appears to be similar to those used in the construction of the nearby historically important Westmoreland Terrace Condominiums.  Careful investigation of the site has revealed a moss-covered bump that seems to be not a rock but a cement-mortar structure.  Rosslyn is the oldest continuous settlement within present-day Arlington County.   These finds further highlight Rosslyn's historic importance.

Rosslyn's Ft. Myer Heights Park is the site of a perpetually forthcoming children's playground. That children's playground will include children's simulated fossil dig.  Why wait for a simulated fossil dig?  Everyone can have fun looking for real archeological artifacts around Rosslyn.
