The Carlyle House & Park

The Carlyle House is a mid-Georgian mansion completed for John and Sara Carlyle in 1752, in Alexandria, Virginia. John Carlyle was a native of Scotland and one of the incorporators of the city of Alexandria. Carlyle was a wealthy merchant. In April of 1755, English General Braddock occupied Carlyle House and met there with the governors of Virginia, Massachusetts, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New York to plan the ill-fated campaign against the French and Indians. Among other notables who visited the house at various times were George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, George Mason, Thomas Jefferson, John Marshall, Light Horse Harry Lee, and John Paul Jones. The Carlyle House is owned and operated by the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority, and is open to the public. The grounds around the house are maintained as a state park. This gallery will include photos of the house and grounds taken in different seasons, starting with this Fall (2006).
