Who Is That Man, Anyway?
Subject: Washington's DC Houses
Location: Capitol Hill
( Constitution Avenue & Delaware Avenue )
One of the more obscure memorials in Washington, this plaque appears on a rock on the northwest lawn of the Capitol. It marks the location of two houses built for George Washington and designed by Dr. William A. Thornton (the original architect of the Capitol). Washington purchased and developed these lots in the proposed Federal City to encourage others to settle in what was an otherwise undeveloped area.
