Prospect House, 3508 Prospect Street, Northwest, Washington, District of Columbia, DC



Significance: This is one of the few freestanding, late eighteenth century mansions remaining in the western part of Georgetown. Predating the establishment of the nearby Federal City,, it has been occupied from the time of its erection by several prominent families. The name comes from the views made possible by its setting on a hill above the Potomac River.
