NPS, Frank Harrell. “This house was the home of Susan Riviere Hetzel (April 7, 1846-June 4, 1908) who was one of the organizers of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). She and her mother, Margaretta Hetzel, another founder of the DAR, lived in this house for 25 years. The DAR placed a commemorative bronze plaque in the front yard in 1964 for their contribution to the formation and early development of this patriotic organization. In 1869, Susan Hetzel organized the first elementary school and Sunday school classes, which were held here until a school building was built. Listed in the County inventory of Historic Sites by the Fairfax County History Commission because of its architectural and historic significance to the community.” (Submitted on January 6, 2018, by Allen C.
