Theodore Roosevelt Island in Washington, District of Columbia — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Mason Mansion about 1900
John Mason* had an elegant summer home on the small rise you see behind the sign. From about 1792 to 1830 it was a center of Washington and Georgetown society. A few bricks are all that remain of its former splendor.
*Son of George Mason, author of the Virginia Declaration of Rights.
