Henry Foxhall House, 3123 Dumbarton Street, Northwest, Washington, District of Columbia, DC



Significance: The Henry Foxhall (McKenny) House's primary significance is as an outstanding example of the late Federal period architecture in transition to early classical revival style. The gardens were designed by Rose Greely, an early and important woman landscape architect (the first licensed in the District of Columbia), further enhancing the importance of the house and grounds. Although not his residence, the house also derives significance from its association with Henry Foxhall, a mayor of Georgetown and munitions manufacturer.
