  • If you are taking a walk around the city make sure to stop here and check out this old cabin. George Washington has a lot of history in this area of Maryland. Unfortunately you can’t see the inside but I still enjoyed staring at it and daydreaming of life a couple hundred years ago. I’m happy the city moved this building and preserved it for future generations to enjoy.
  • Very cool place but small, alot of history in a small package.
