9781332128877: Forest Glen Park and the Forest Inn (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Forest Glen Park and the Forest Inn

Lying to the north Washington, scarcely beyond the limits of the District of Columbia, and bordering on the picturesque and romantic Rock Creek where it threads its tortuous course through the fertile meadows and wooded hills of Montgomery County, Maryland, is Forest Glen Park, a tract which for more than a half a century has been renowned for its natural attractiveness. Its towering trees, rippling brooks, sunny slopes, and winding avenues, combine in forming a spot which for natural beauty is seldom rivaled.

As long ago as 1826, a company of gentlemen, recognizing its advantages, purchased and subdivided it, but the demand of Washington for suburban property was then limited, and the project after a few years was abandoned and the park disposed of. Since then all efforts looking toward its purchase have been futile, until the autumn when "The Forest Glen Improvement Company" concluded negotiations, and came into possession of the property.
