National Seminary Apartments- 113 Years of History

9610 Dewitt Dr, Silver Spring, MD 20910, USA
$430,000

Description

A piece of DC’s history, the National Seminary Apartments are a living tribute to the bygone Gilded Age of Washington. Built in the 1887, as the “Ye Forest Inn”- it served as summer resort for the D.C.’s wealthy citizens. The opulent Victorian hotel was built by Architect T.F. Schneider, who also built D.C.’s beloved Cairo building.

In 1894, it was bought and converted into an all girl’s finishing school, dubbed the National Park Seminary. Following a fascinating architectural trend, the school built eight sororities modeled after architectural styles around the world. The unique buildings still on the property include; a Japanese pagoda, Swiss Chalet, a Dutch Windmill, Japanese Bungalow, and Greek Parthenon. Many of America’s elite families sent their daughters to this prestigious school. Famous names on the school’s registry include; Hershey, Chrysler, Heniz, Kraft and Maytag.

After the start of WWII, the United States Army purchased the school in 1942 to use it as a rehabilitation center for wounded soldiers. The army owned the building for almost 60 years, housing veterans from World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam War. In 1972, National Park Seminary was placed on the National Register of Historic Places as an historic district.

In 2001, the compound changed hands and was developed into to luxury condominiums with the goal in mind to preserve National Seminary Park. The magic of the past still exists in on the grounds perfectly mingled with modern luxury living. Just step into the four-story grand ballroom, or visit the hidden English castle (complete with a drawbridge) on the 13 acre grounds to be transported back to another era.
