The name Glover Park which first appeared in advertisements in 1926, honors the name of Washington banker and philanthropist Charles Carroll Glover (1846-1936). Glover was instrumental in the building of the National Cathedral, the completion of the Washington Monument, and the creation of three thousand acres of parkland, including the National Zoo and Rock Creek Park, in the District of Columbia.
