Washington in Washington, District of Columbia — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Rock Creek Park
Joshua was an avid horticulturist, and soon cultivated this barren hillside into a beautiful garden area with many rare and exotic trees and shrubs.
When Joshua died in 1869, he left the estate to his nephew, Joshua Pierce Kingle. The property was acquired in 1890 as a part of Rock Creek Park.
