Living here in the shadow of Washington DC, George figures large in local history and lore. The hilltop that I live on, was once owned by George.
He was many things, a legend in his own time. The George Washington Masonic Memorial is at the end of King Street in Alexandria. This larger than life statue is in the Memorial. If not for the trees, I could see the memorial from my living room.
What historical figure looms large in your neighborhood?
