Description
Completed in 1809, the original Fort Washington protected the District of Columbia until the defensive structure was destroyed by its own garrison in 1814. Pierre-Charles L'Enfant worked on the construction of a new fort for a short period of time but was replaced by Lieutenant Colonel Walker K. Armistead. At Fort Washington Park, military seacoast fortifications from two different time periods can still be seen.
