Inscription.  This property at 472 N. Washington St. was part of a 1729 land grant from Lord Fairfax to John Trammell. Developed only after half the original 248 acres was sold in 1865 to Isaac Crossman, and the Fairfax and Georgetown Turnpike (now Lee Highway) was built in the 1870s. The site of the 1900 home of Dr. Tunis Quick, which his former schoolmate President William Taft visited briefly on July 21, 1911, enroute to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the First Battle of Bull Run. About 1920 the house was substantially altered into a funeral home. A 1986 historic certification was legally challenged, and in late 1989 the city approved its demolition.
