Once a Parking Lot for Autos

The Old Stone House is on M Street not too far from the White House.  It was built in 1775 and has had many owners.  In 1935 there was a used car lot where the garden is today and the house was home to the offices of the Parkway Motor Company.
The National Park Service bought this historic residence in 1953 and opened it to the public, for free, in 1960.
