Grand View, 9000 Richmond Highway (U.S. Route 1), Mount Vernon, Fairfax County, VA
Significance: Grand View, home of Jacob M. and Ann Walton Troth, was built in 1859, and aptly named for the beautiful view it commands of the original Woodlawn plantation and the Potomac River. It is one of the oldest surviving Quaker Houses in the Woodlawn area. President and Mrs. Rutherford B. Hayes once visited Grand View in June 1878 following a visit to Mount Vernon and Woodlawn plantation. At the turn of the century, Sally Troth Anthony operated a general merchandise store at Grand View. The house is a modest farm home, typical of the period and area, with brick foundations and weatherboard siding. It has a Greek Revival entrance and a simple bay window to the south. The chimney on the south wing is capped with a brick Gothic arch.
