Cleveland Park / Massachusetts Heights / Woodley Park (August 13, 2019)
During our walks, we seldom come across modern houses. Here is a rare example.
We found ourselves on Massachusetts Avenue briefly, with just enough time to check out a few embassies along Embassy Row. We have included the following photo of the Norwegian Embassy to honor Mal’s Norwegian heritage.
Back on the side streets, we were intrigued by this house with it interesting yellow and purple color scheme. The intricate iron work was reminiscent of New Orleans.
We walked by Maret School, its iconic Woodley Mansion standing up on top of a long sloping hill. The Federal-style building was built in 1801.
Maret was founded in 1911 as a French primary school by three French sisters, the Marets. Today it is a highly regarded coeducational private school with over 600 students from kindergarten to high school age.
