Have you ever wondered what you pass while enjoying a nice walk, run or bike ride from our townhomes at Little Falls Place to Georgetown? Thanks to the Coalition for the Capital Crescent Trail, here are a few of the highlights along the way:
About mile 5.0 – stairs leading directly from Little Falls Place to the Capital Crescent Trail.
Mile 5.0 – Loughborough Mill, named after John Adam’s Secretary of Treasury, Nathan Loughborough, marks where he built a mill in 1830. The mill was later reportedly destroyed during the Civil War.
Mile 5.5 – The last remaining evidence of Fort Sumner, Battery Bailey’s gun emplacements are visible atop the east hill in Westmoreland Hills Park.
Mile 6.7 – An original stone district line boundary marker behind a small fence. These stones were used until the land southwest of the river was given back to Virginia from DC.
Mile 8.2 – Abner Cloud House, built in 1801 by Abner Cloud, is the oldest standing structure along the C&O Canal.
Mile 10.5 – Francis Scott Key Bridge, named after the man who wrote our nation’s Star Spangled Banner, connects Rossyln and Georgetown and pedestrian trails on both sides of the river.
Miles 10.5-11 – Your destination! Georgetown Waterfront Park and the Washington Harbour, preserved by the National Park Service, is home to many acclaimed restaurants and adjacent to all the exciting Georgetown shops.
