Speaking of long history, this house that is currently on the market has been on the same family since 1897, or passing through 19 presidents. Via Washington Post.
In 1897, 10 years before the foundation stone was laid for the Washington National Cathedral, Samuel Arthur Swindells (1868-1959) and his wife Margaret (1868-1938) bought land at 3426 Macomb St. NW in Cleveland Park.
The Swindells chose the then-bucolic community because they wanted to get out to the country and away from "the hustle and bustle of Georgetown," said Peter Swindells, their grandson.
In 1898, the young couple moved in, just around the corner from the former summer home of President Grover Cleveland. Their house has been in the same family ever since, through 19 U.S. presidents. Now it's up for sale for the first time.
The address is 3426 Macomb St., Cleveland Park. The property is listed for $1M.
